9:30 – 10:30 EDUCATION
The Secret to Student Success at Roosevelt
Speaker: Michael Bradley, Principal, Roosevelt High School, Minneapolis
Roosevelt High School has changed in significant ways since Bradley became the principal. He will share his philosophy of education and how the school has become an exciting place to learn and work for both students and teachers. His goal is to support the students academically, emotionally, and socially. He has challenged everyone at Roosevelt to
meet those goals.
10:45 – 11:45 OUR PLACE IN THE WORLD
National Sovereignty and Global Technical Networks
Speaker: Thomas Wolfe, Associate Professor of History, University of Minnesota
We take for granted our consumption of “media,” but where, exactly, is “media” located? We know that it is all around us, all the time. Our lives would be impoverished by its sudden disappearance, but where is it from? Where does it reside and go between? Our conversation will be about the implications of politics and society, of this gap between our own situated lives, and the placelessness of our networked world.
11:45 – 12:00 ANNOUNCEMENTS
12:00 – 1:15 LUNCHEON
