Dr. Laura Hartman from University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Blurb: The way we get from point A to point B is not just a logistical question: it's also an ethical question. Some modes of transportation are more conducive to fostering community well being and environmental flourishing than others are. A lively and nuanced examination of bicycling -- from its exclusionary history to its revolutionary physics to its symbolic meaning -- allows for an insightful ethical analysis not only of bicycles but of transportation itself.  Open to the public!
