The Lay of the Land

A physical delineation of nature terminates at the point where the sphere of intellect begins, and a new world of mind is opened to our view. -Alexander von Humboldt
Welcome to the 43rd CLUI newsletter, which covers the past year of CLUI programming, in 2019. This was a period of national divisions, international influence, and self-reflection—at least in terms of the subject of our programs. Any similarity to political conditions in the country are purely coincidental, as much as anything is. But, as our lengthy journey down the Continental Divide suggests, it is in the zone of division where opposing sides actually come together. So thanks for being here and there.
