Thursday, Feb. 7, 6-7:30 p.m

In an age of big governments, big corporations and big farms, there are increasing calls for citizens to support local food movements, local businesses and smaller government. Join the conversation as UofL political scientist David Imbroscio moderates a discussion between Thad Williamson (Univeristy of Richmond) and Mark Mitchell (Patrick Henry College) on the search for "humane scale."

Please note: The event will take place in the Bingham Humanities Buildling, room 205 (map).
