[10 minutes discussion to start: any more feedback in particular for the last three presentations,
about Latinx, clothing sources/style, and/or the pay/treatment of student dining center workers?

Then, more generally: how might we carry all these projects forward?
With whom else might each of you share your work?
What else would you like to know-or-understand about your own particular “enlarged contact zone”?
What are you learning from your peers: how is this range of presentations expanding your sense of your contact zone?

A reminder that your last short posting is due by 5 p.m. tomorrow, reflecting on the
questions we just discussed about how you might carry your work forward,
plus what you learned from your peers during these presentations (just 1-2 paragraphs).

And now more!
