As part of the University of Wyoming Center for Global Studies’ “World to Wyoming Tour,” three UW students will present on their international fieldwork Thursday, March 2, at Northwest College. The “What in the World” series presentations begin at 2:25 p.m. in Fagerberg Building Room 70.

Emily Beagle, a mechanical engineering doctoral candidate from Sheridan, Wyoming, will discuss her research on “European Bioenergy Systems and Beetle Kill Management.” Beagle examined the present state of bioenergy systems in the European Union and researched how similar systems can be implemented to manage the beetle kill epidemic as well as in energy applications.

Jeremy Goldsmith will discuss “Evaluating Why and How Gambians Migrate.” Goldsmith is an international studies/environment and natural resources master’s degree candidate from Louisville, Kentucky, who traveled to Gambia in West Africa to visit with immigrants about factors impacting their decisions to illegally immigrate to Europe.

Denise Muro, an international studies master’s degree candidate from Denver will present her study titled “Portrayals of Displaced Syrian and Iraqi Women in Germany.” Muro documented the experiences of Syrian and Iraqi women in Berlin.

This event is sponsored by the UW Center for Global Studies, UW Outreach School, ThinkWY, NWC Departments of Anthropology, Sociology and International Studies and the NWC Office of Intercultural Programs. It is free and open to the public.
