Yang Fan, assistant professor of project management, delivered a presentation about analyzing project environment in late May at China’s Xi’an University of Technology. Graduate students and faculty from the Xi’an University’s Economic and Management College attended the presentation.

Fan used his project management experience in the Middle East to explain why and how to analyze a project context and identify environmental risks. He also pointed out that for Chinese projects conducted overseas, major risks may come from the governance system of the parent corporation as well as from external factors.

Reitz’s paper presentation primarily centered on archival research from the Potter County Historical Society in Coudersport, Pennsylvania, debunking the fanciful versions of violinist and settler Ole Bornemann Bull’s accounts of the failure of the colony there. Additionally, Reitz moderated a session on “Hmong Voices and Piano Music of Ramon Pagayon Santos.”

Support for the research was provided in part by the School of Music and the College of Fine and Performing Arts.
