“Transportation in a Globalized and Multicultural Society,” a presentation by EunSu Lee, doctoral candidate in the transportation and logistics department, is scheduled for Thursday, March 24, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Union Meadow Lark room.
Transportation is one of the key components of globalization and multiculturalism. International trade and migration have become possible due to advanced transportation technology. However, transportation also has caused inequality across the world by generating gaps among geographically different places.
Lee’s presentation will highlight the various pros and cons of transportation, specifically examining the impact these technological advances have on health care, food, housing, and communication and transportation networks.
The presentation is part of the World iView speaker series sponsored by the Office of International Programs.
