Special thanks to Ms. Nachbar’s Duluth East High School 3rd period and 6th period World History classes for hosting my talks. It is a pleasure to reach across institutional lines, and share the process of learning and teaching about our complex world, past and present, there and here, together. North Star Reports writers, volunteers, editors, and social media editors, you are doing excellent work. I met many of your new readers today, and I hope they will become NSR writers/contributors very soon. Thanks to all of you. Professor Liang.
