Anthropology Prof Talks About Tahiti
Charlie Urbanowicz, Anthropology, was the destination lecturer
on the Tahitian Princess in the South Pacific over winter
break. He lectured about the peoples and cultures of Polynesia,
including Tahiti, the Marquesas, and Rarotonga. While pointing out
the traditional way of life, he also discussed changes over time.
Princess Cruises’s ScholarShip@Sea program recruits individuals
who know the locations cruised. Urbanowicz has been to Tahiti, and
his PhD research was in the Polynesian Kingdom of Tonga. At the
Anthropology Forum on March 24 (Ayres 106 at 4 pm), Urbanowicz will
present information on Tahiti and changes in the Pacific. This summer,
he will be a lecturer on a cruise through the World War II islands
of the Pacific, from Honolulu to Beijing.
KCHO is part of an elite group of public radio stations the Corporation
for Public Broadcasting has classified as “soaring”
in their financial health and audience service. Only 10 percent
of stations in the public radio system have achieved the “soaring”
classification. “It is especially good to note that our station
is the only public station in California to have earned the ‘soaring’
distinction,” said Jack Brown, director of KCHO.
