Panel Discussion on Urbanism, Patrimony, Ownership, and Culture in Florida

I received an announcement for a panel discussion on "Urbanism, Patrimony, Ownership, and Culture in Florida" to be held at:

Wolson Campus of Miami Dade College
300 NE 2nd Ave., Room 7128, 
First Floor of Building 7

on Thursday, November 6th
at 6:30 pm

Free and Open to the Public

Here's the poster.

The announcement I received says it is a "panel on the current archaeological excavations at Met Square (which include a prehistoric village, Ft. Dallas, and the historic Royal Palm Hotel). This panel will include the County Archaeologist Jeff Ransom, the UM Archaeologist who has an ongoing  legal battle with the City in an attempt to save the site, Dr. Will Pestle, Mary Lou Pfeiffer from FIU who wrote a book about the legal aspects of the handling of the famous Miami Circle, and an Urbanism Professor from UM, Dr. Allan Shulman.

"This panel is supported by a grant from the state of Florida and news alerts have been sent to all local South Florida museums, universities, and news organizations including the Miami Herald and NPR."

Sounds interesting. I urge you attend.
