Encore Hokie Talk Presentations

Saturday, February 26, 2019 at 1 pm we welcomed Matthew Gabriele, Professor and Chair of the Dept. of Religion and Culture, to share his ideas on how The Game of Thrones has picked up subtle ways women gain power in patriarchal cultures, as well as misconceptions about the Middle Ages from 19th and 20th century culture, not historical events. It was open to friends, family and alumni of all ages. Thank you to Prof. Gabriele and his wife for making their first trip to Fauquier County. And many thanks to Old Bust Head for the great beer and root beer.

Saturday, Jan 20, 2018 at 3 pm we welcomed Dr. David Goldsmith at Old Bust Head Brewery in Vint Hill for his presentation: Constructing the Future: How we are using robots, drones, 700 mph trains. It was a FREE event, open to friends, family and alumni of all ages. The room was filled to capacity while Goldsmith showed slides of drones at construction sites and his Hyperloop team competition. After the presentation there was an optional brewery tour and then a live band. Heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. Goldsmith for making the trip up here from Blacksburg!
