For many people, transportation is just a way to get from A to B — usually by car. But decades of research shows that, if we design our streets to prioritize walking, biking, and public transit, we can improve public health, make our economy stronger, and build a more inclusive and vibrant community. How might Central Texas and San Marcos become leaders in the state by creating an urban and suburban streetscape that encourages more walking and biking? What opportunities (and obstacles) shape current policy? And how can students, faculty, and local residents collaborate to make this achievable future a reality?

Join us for a live podcast event featuring special guest panelists:
  • Dr. Joca Marquez, San Marcos City Council, Place 5
  • Alex Vogt, coordinator of Alternative Transportation, Texas State
  • Dr. Billy Fields, associate professor, Political Science
  • Andrea Villalobos, city planner for San Marcos, Texas State Honors graduate, and bicycle commuter
Audience Q&A will follow an introductory discussion, and a light reception will conclude the evening. The event will be recorded by KTSW, and the panel discussion and Q&A will be moderated by Nicholas Williams, Texas State Honors student and producer for KTSW.

This event is free and open to the public. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are heartily encouraged to attend. Automobile parking is available in the Edward Gary Street Garage. Complimentary bicycle parking is located on the main quad near the Bobcat Statue, and on Bobcat Trail near Academic Services Building South. Free bus information is available on the Bobcat Shuttle website.

In the classic Japanese film, Rashomon (1950), director Akira Kurosawa presents four different accounts of a rape, robbery, and murder, leaving viewers wondering what really happened. Mass Comm Week and the Philosophy Dialogue Series feature a special screening of Rashomon, which explores the slippery nature of "Truth." Following the film, three Texas State faculty members will provide context and lead the audience in a discussion of the film and questions it raises.

Dialogue Leaders:
  • Gilbert D. Martinez, J.D., School of Journalism and Mass Communication
  • Jo Ann Carson, Ph.D., Department of Philosophy
