  • Georgia Poetry Circuit: Victoria Chang (November 13 at 6:30 pm)- Editor of Asian American Poetry: The Next Generation, Victoria Chang is an American poet and children’s book writer. Her work includes the award-winning poem, Circle, which the reviewer of the online journal Blackbird, said includes “characters in liminal states and women struggling with restrictive roles” as well as “rueful wit that undercuts any sense of self-righteousness.”
  • Bradley Observatory Open House: Young Star Clusters in the Gum Nebula (November 13 at 8 pm)- As children, we are often asked what we want to be when we grow up. For GSU Second Century Initiative Fellow Alexandra Yep, the answer was easy. She knew she wanted to be an astronomer. Intrigued by the light of the stars and the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, Yep became an avid star gazer. Yep is researching the formation of young stars in the Gum Nebula, an emission nebula that extends across the southern constellations. Southern constellations reside south of the equator and can be better seen from the southern hemisphere. According to Yep, the formation of these stars is specifically interesting because unlike most stars, these stars formed with the help of an external force: other stars.
  • City of Decatur Anti-Racism Speaker Series: Tim Wise (December 3 at 6 pm)- Tim Wise is among the most prominent anti-racist writers and educators in the United States. He has spent the past 25 years speaking to audiences in all 50 states, on over 1,000 college and high school campuses, at hundreds of professional and academic conferences, and to community groups across the country. He has trained corporate, government, entertainment, media, law enforcement, military and medical industry professionals on methods for dismantling racism in their institutions.
  • Bradley Observatory Open House: The National Astronomy Consortium (December 11 at 8 pm)- Most of Bradley Observatory’s open houses focus on a topic in physics or astronomy with lectures given by Agnes Scott faculty, students, alumni or local scientists. This event will feature Agnes Scott students Azia Robinson & Mihika Rao as they present on The National Astronomy Consortium (NAC).
