Prof. Lora Warner directs UW-Green Bay’s Center for Public Affairs which connects students and faculty with the community through research, internships, service projects and courses. Students undertake high-impact, 360 degree experiences while the community benefits from the expertise of students and faculty. The result? More engaged citizens and community strategies for enhancing quality of life.

UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Rebecca Meacham leads the next After Thoughtsconversation, with her talk, “Fiction’s Burning Questions: Novelists, History and the Creative Spark.” Meacham’s address will explore how novelists navigate a process she refers to as “slow, directionless and full of wrong turns” — how they create absorbing fiction from the facts of history, and how they imagine the thoughts and passions of characters often left out of the history books.
The After Thoughts series was started in spring 2011 to connect community women with UW-Green Bay, showcase UW-Green Bay’s faculty and staff, convene women after their workday for learning, enrichment and fun, and provide “After Thoughts” to take with them when they leave.
