Occasionally, the usual pace of academic research proves insufficient, and events overtake us. The fora that make up EmergentC21 react to world, national, and local events as they happen. Each forum becomes a site of communication, bringing together Milwaukee community, field experts, and UWM researchers in a mutual exchange of information, questions, and practices.
