Illinois State University Speaker Series – Kelsey Timmerman
Family and Consumer Sciences will present Kelsey Timmerman, who explores globalization and the everyday items people often take for granted. Timmerman will discuss “Common Threads: A Global Search for Community” at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 27, in room 138 of Schroeder Hall. This talk is co-sponsored by the Fell Trust, College of Applied Science and Technology, and department of agriculture.
