Location, Location, Location.
Interdisciplinary Studies and Dunbar Community Centre Association Lecture Series
Thursday, 7:30 pm–9:00 pm
January 10–March 21, 2019
The modern real estate mantra, “location, location, location,” names an idea that has long dictated where we choose to settle: as individuals, as communities, and as nations. These lectures will explore the important role our surroundings have on the way we interact with and understand the world around us.
