JACKSON, Tenn.Jan. 27, 2011 – Technology and culture will be the topic for the next Town and Gown series at Union University from Feb. 10-March 10.

The Town and Gown series is an opportunity for community members interested in various topics to attend lectures and participate in discussions in a classroom setting. The classes are free and open to the public.

The schedule for the series is:
