Below are “pop scholarship” in Boise events on the TBR calendar this week. We keep our eyes out for events on and off campus that coincide with our mission to deepen public involvement and understanding, to debate the ideas of our time and place and to bridge the worlds of academia, journalism and the public interest.
TBR Essays reflect a writers own views on contemporary topics.
Feel free to let us know of other interesting, upcoming events by emailing the editor or in the comments below.
