ULM'S CHAUTAUQUA NEXUS DISCUSSES "BLU ON THE BAYOU"
AND LAMARCKIAN EVOLUTION
The University of Louisiana at Monroe's Chautauqua Nexus hosts
two separate talks this week.
The first one will be held Friday, Oct. 5th on the second floor
of the Student Union Building from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Friday's talk is on Lamarckian Evolution. Fred Groves is the
Evolution and Creationism are of topics of current debate. There
are those who side with Evolutionary Theory, and those who contest
the views of Darwin and Lamarck.
The second Chautauqua of the week will be on Saturday, Oct. 6th
from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Enoch's. Gene Eller is the
featured speaker for Saturday's talks. Eller is expected to discuss
Gutterpunks in his Chautauqua named, "Blu on the Bayou".
Blu is a guttermonk, hitchhiker, freight train hopper, and globetrotting
singer who wrote 200 "folksy blues" songs during his
travels. Gene (maybe Blu) presents a sample of Blu's songs written
during these travels.
These weekly meetings are informal conversations attempting to
connect people of all ages who are interested in intellectual
and cultural exchanges. The Chautuaqua group meets every week
on the second floor of the Student Union Building on the ULM
campus (unless otherwise noted) beginning at 4:30 on Fridays
or Saturdays. There are no requirements and everyone is invited
to come. Drinks and snacks will be provided. Visitors are welcome
to make a small donation for foods.
All media welcome.
