Norwegian language lessons

In Spring 2013, a (non-credit) Norwegian language course is offered for students who plan to assist with fieldwork research in Oslo, UT Geography students, and community members. The first class was attended by 8 members of the local Sons of Norway chapter and 7 UT students (Matt Cook, Ben Todd, Scott Basford, Nancy Li, Eva Feng, Ruth Bowling, and José Izquierdo). Dr. Alderman (pictured far right) welcomed the participants.

Department Welcome Party Spring 2013

A good crowd of faculty, graduate students, and significant others attended the Welcome Back party hosted by Carol Harden before the 2013 spring semester began.  We welcomed Dr. Robert Washington-Allen, who joined the geography faculty as of January 2013, and enjoyed a relaxed evening together before the semester.
