Student presentations on Wal-Mart at St. Olaf College

“Wal-Mart America: Changing the Face of Our World” explores changes in work, business, shopping, and the everday landscape in the late-20th and early-21st centuries. Sponsored by History 297, a course taught by Eric Fure-Slocum this spring at St. Olaf College, this event features student projects and presentations, as well as a panel discussion on Wal-Mart and American society.

The panel discussion, running from 7 to 8:15 p.m. will include Jenny Shegos from the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 789, a Wal-Mart representative, and Ross Currier of the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation. This discussion will be held in The Pause, a student gathering spot in Buntrock Commons on the St. Olaf campus.
