About the Chautauqua Nexus:

Nexus presentations are free, informal and open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend. ULM FRYS students are encouraged to attend and sign in.

“The Nexus is an opportunity for intellectual and cultural exchange,” said Joe McGahan, ULM psychology professor and Chautauqua Nexus organizer. “This year we're focusing on a change in scheduling (with Mondays being the primary meeting day) intended to free us to develop a think tank, or multiple think tanks, that, like the Nexus, will build on the cultural resources of our community. Whereas the Nexus series will continue to be about virtually any topic that people find interesting, the think tank will focus on economic security and economic development—to a large extent, we’d like to focus on the potential of research and development.”
