The Colonial Academic Alliance works with our member institutions and partner organizations to identify and publicize opportunities for faculty and staff professional development. Several new initiatives were recently announced:
One Giant Leap: Apollo 11 @ 50 | Hofstra University
The Apollo 11 Moon landing on July 20, 1969, marked a watershed moment in human history for science, engineering, and culture, not only in the United States, but around the globe. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of that landmark series of events, the Cultural Center at Hofstra University, in partnership with the Cradle of Aviation Museum, invites paper proposals for an interdisciplinary conference, One Giant Leap: Apollo 11 @ 50, to be held on the Hofstra campus April 2-3, 2019. Application materials should be directed to the conference co-directors at the Hofstra Cultural Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, please contact the Hofstra Cultural Center at 516-463-5669 or visit hofstra.edu/apollo11.
