Land, People, Place: (Dis)Connections in New Mexico
July 14-19, 2015

New Mexico is home to a variety of cultures and peoples, reflecting a myriad of identities and worldviews resulting from centuries of resisting, clashing, blending, and negotiating. This faculty institute will consider questions of how natural and built places of the region create connections and/or divides among the diverse peoples in New Mexico. Explorations will focus on the neighborhoods of Albuquerque and the contrasting pueblos of Isleta and Acoma as well as the landscapes in and around these destinations.

2015 CAT Food Politics: The Iowa State Fair and The World Food Prize
August 12-16, 2015

“Eradication of world hunger” is the first of the United Nations Millennial Development Goals. On location in Des Moines and Ames, Iowa participants will start to understand the intricate pieces of this goal by investigating the multiple dimensions of crop and animal agriculture, including food production, research initiatives, and policy implications. The unique opportunity to observe all of these in action comes from spending the first day at the Iowa State Fair, arguably the largest state fair in the U.S., then moving to the World Food Prize headquarters where global food insecurity is a focused priority, and ending at the Aldo Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, where alternative models engage in food safety, security, and productivity.
