Boise State University professor Lynn Lubamersky said she'll examine Boise's 150th anniversary celebration in the wider context of the ways cultures across the world commemorate their own histories. She said she'll encourage Boiseans to look beyond the events, people and shifts history typically chronicles and consider the common ways of life that people who populated the city engaged in.
Lubamersky's presentation is part of the Fettuccine Forum and will launch Thinking 150: 3 Days and 3 Events, which will look at Boise's past, present and future. This event gets under way at 5 p.m., Feb. 7, at Downtown Boise's Rose Room, 718 W. Idaho St.
Lubamersky is an associate professor in the history department at Boise State University. She teaches courses in womens history, the history of the family, and the history of early modern Europe.
The Fettuccine Forum is a free public lecture series on the first Thursday of six months during the academic year. The Forum includes a companion workshop, offered for graduate and undergraduate credit. For more information, contact Todd Shallat at email@example.com
