Ronanmcdonald

in the Instiute's annual Seamus Heaney Memorial Lecture, Rónán McDonald, Professor of Modern Literature and Director of Irish Studies at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, will speak on the concept of "credit" in Seamus Heaney’s work, both as an ascription of value to art and a wily negotiation of faith and belief. It will look at Heaney’s justifications of poetry and its purpose in his critical essays and in his ars poetica (poems about poetry), alert to various configurations of balance and equilibrium.

Conversation: "Designing Smart Cities: Mayors Taking Action"

-

Location: 101 Jordan Hall of Science

A Conversation with Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Mayor James Brainard

Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-South Bend, IN) and Mayor Jim Brainard (R-Carmel, IN) have both opposed President Trump’s withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement and have committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their cities. Both have committed their municipalities to new “smart city” designs, creating walkable cities, promoting bike riding, and switching to hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles. They believe that these changes are part of a plan that is good for the earth, the economy, public health, and national security. With metropolitan areas housing 80% of the U.S. population, both mayors are committed to the belief that local policies can help offset a lack of action on the national level.
