THE COLLEGE COMMONS SIGNATURE EVENT
The Map of the World: Movement and Mystery
Natural History Museum
To secure your spot please RSVP to:Event Code: CCMAP
At this event, USC College faculty members Frank Corsetti (Earth Sciences), Philip Ethington (History) and John Wilson (Geography) will discuss the range of "mappings" that give us meaning. From California missions to celebrity murders, from the Santa Monica Bay to the desert, the movement of tectonic plates to shifting populations, we will ask, "How did we get here, and where are we going?" We draw on the wonderful collections of the Natural History Museum to pose new answers to those questions.
Parking information: Exposition Park Lot 3, west of Menlo just south of Exposition and east of Vermont. Cost for parking is usually $8, but may be more expensive if there is an event at the Coliseum (subject to change). Museum First Friday cost for parking is $8.
For further information, please call our 24 hour information phone-line at (213) 763-DINO
