Announcing “Rant on the Rails: Thursdays at R’s Kitchen”: a new interdisciplinary occasional series covering important issues at the local, national and international level. The event is sponsored by the Woefl Seminar in Public Policy and the Department of Political Science. The idea behind the series is to select different topics of interest for the community where civic discourse and conversation emerges sparked by panel sessions, guest lectures, Q&A, or any number of other conversational modalities. Our second event will take place on Thursday, January 25th, at 6pm. Please note our NEW venue: MT Glass/R’s Kitchen: 13441 Cedar Road (next to Melt) The topic this time is “Local Politics.” Students, faculty, and special guest speakers will begin the dialogue and then we will open it up to broader debate from the community. We will also solicit the crowd for any suggestions you have for future topics for this series. To begin, buy yourself a drink and any food you would like and pull up a chair. See you there!
