Three talks on campus, Monday

A trio of talks highlights happenings on the University of Lethbridge campus on Monday, Sept. 27.

Early in the day, Catherine Crowston, the deputy director and chief curator of the Art Gallery of Alberta, will speak as part of the Art Now series. Crowston has curated numerous exhibitions over the course of her career and overseen the production of several national traveling exhibitions. Her Art Now address is at noon in the University Recital Hall (W570).

Crowston will then speak to a different topic and a likely different audience at 6 p.m. in C610 as part of the Architecture & Design Now speaker series.

Both talks are free of charge and open to anyone.

Monday evening, the Women Scholars Speaker Series, along with Egale Canada, the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs, Gay and Lesbian Alliance, Lethbridge Public Interest Research Group and the University of Lethbridge Students' Union present Georgina Beyer and her talk, Overcoming Barrier: A Discussion with the World's First Trans MP.

Beyer, a Member of Parliament in New Zealand, was the first openly transgender person in the world to hold a national office. Her lecture will be presented from 7 to 9 p.m. in Ballroom B of the Students' Union Building.

The event is free and everyone is welcome to attend.
