RIT Gosnell Lecture Focuses on Economic Security, March 10

Follow RITNEWS on Twitter Economic security will be the subject of the next Arthur J. Gosnell lecture at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Geoffrey Hewings will present his talk, “Trade, Fragmentation and Economic Security: A Spatial Perspective,” from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 10, in the Carlson Building auditorium (building 76, room 1125) on the RIT campus. The event—free and open to the public—will be followed by a reception.

Hewings has made major contributions to the development of methods for understanding regional and urban economies. He is a professor of geography, economics, and urban and regional planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the founder and director of REAL (regional economic analysis laboratory), a research joint venture of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and UI.

“Professor Hewings is a respected scholar in regional science,” says Amit Batabyal, the Arthur J. Gosnell Professor of Economics in RIT’s College of Liberal Arts. “His talk is sure to be both interesting and provocative as far as economic security issues are concerned.”
