Flat Places, Deep Identities: Mapping Nebraska and the Great Plains

The symposium calls for a critical reexamination of maps and the mapping of our region, from earliest historical maps to present digital cartography and remote sensing, from Pawnee star charts to cadastral surveys.

Collaboration Retreat Planned for October 28th

NU President Hank Bounds has announced the latest call in the Collaboration Initiatives, System Sciences.  A retreat will be held October 28, 2016 for faculty interested in submitting a proposal for the three System Science award programs (planning grants, seed grants, and  seed grants for existing teams.)

Deadline for retreat registration is October 24th, 2016.  Register here.

Participation in the retreat is required for PI’s and recommended for Co-I’s in the collaboration initiative programs.  The new System Science program complements the existing Food for Health program and teams interested in seed awards in this area must also attend the October 28th retreat.  Read about the NU System Collaboration Initiatives here.
