THE GREAT LAKES ROUNDTABLE  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The Great Lakes Roundtable will bring together Canadian and American scholars, writers, and policymakers who are interested in the ways that Canada and the U.S. have historically used and approached the Great Lakes. Underlying the roundtable is the idea that understanding the Great Lakes' past (particularly in the 20th century) is fundamental for comprehending the present and considering the future. The central theme for this particular meeting will be the recent renegotiation of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreements, which builds upon the 1972 and 1978 agreements. In addition to addressing the waters of the Great Lakes, the roundtable will engage other transborder issues that are inherently intertwined with environmental issues and water quality. The roundtable also will forge connections that will lead to linkages between institutions, academics, and policymakers on both sides of the border. Speakers include Fulbright Scholar Daniel Macfarlane, Consul General Roy Norton, State Senator Rebekah Warren.
