The Lincoln Center Institute will be hosting a panel this weekend on Saturday, May 15th from 1:30-3:00pm in Hallock Auditorium (Environmental Studies Building).

Oberlin is the site of one such panel, and information gathered from this panel will become a part of a final summit in 2011. The Ohio Department of Education, OhioDance and Oberlin College are proud to host one of Ohio’s Imagination Conversations.
The panel will include:
Mark Bradford, Professor of Biology and Neuroscience; Julia Christensen, artist, writer, and visiting Luce Assistant Professor of the Emerging Arts; David W. Orr, Paul Sears Distinguished Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics; Lynn Powell, award-winning poet and Oberlin resident. The panel will be moderated by Ann Cooper Albright, performer, choreographer and feminist scholar, and Professor of Dance and Theater at Oberlin College.
