Where: Lake Tahoe Community College Board Room

Tickets: Free


A small slice of the world will come to Lake Tahoe Community College this week.

Anthropology instructor Scott Lukas is scheduled to present on his experiences at this year’s World Expo in Milan, Italy, during “The World Expo and the Future of Culture: Reflections from World Expo 2015 Milan” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3.

The expo took place over six months and more than 140 countries took part.

“The specific focus of the talk is the importance of the world exposition in terms of its showcasing of culture, technology, and architecture, its overall effect on culture and politics, and some of the controversies that impacted the Expo,” according to a description for the event. “The presentation will include images and videos from the 2015 World Expo that highlight its many sights, sounds, and experiences. The talk will also include a consideration of the ‘future of culture’ in terms of how the world exposition and related spaces and events, such as the Olympics or the World Cup, may provide a blueprint for intercultural communication and cooperation between cultures.”

Lukas has taught at LTCC for 16 years, is the author of several books and is a former theme park trainer who has worked as a consultant for Walt Disney Imagineering, Pixar and ABC.
