Published October 12, 2007

IRIS is pleased to announce a forthcoming lecture:

The Culture of Flushing
A social and legal history of sewage presented by University of Ottawa professor Jamie Benidickson.

At a time when water issues are rapidly gaining world-wide importance, even in an area so apparently well-endowed with water as the GTA, this lecture promises to be timely, informative and even entertaining (!). Please join us in the first of four anticipated IRIS lectures this year -- including ones on Hydrogen Fuel, Dirty Gold and, we hope, on Living Without Garbage.

Wednesday, October 17, 4:30 p.m.
Room 0016, TEL Building

York University refreshments and a book signing session (to mark the release of the paperback edition of the book) will follow the presentation.

Click here for a map of the campus. The Technology Enhanced Learning building is in the row behind (south of) the Centre for Film and Theatre and Accolade buildings which line the south side of the commons area (buses stop on the north side of the commons). Room 0016 is in the basement level.
