Upcoming talks at the CGR

We’ve got two great talks scheduled for the Center for Gaming Research later this month.

The first, “Commercialization, Crime, and Casinos: Legacies of 18th Century Gambling,” is by Dr. Nicholas Tosney, our April visiting fellow and a really cool guy to boot. You can see the flyer here. Dr. Tosney is speaking in Special Collections at Lied Library on Wednesday, April 22 at 12:15. If you’re on campus, I strongly urge you to stop by.

A mere eight days later, we’re having casino superhost Steve Cyr, currently senior director of player development at the Hard Rock Las Vegas, give a talk called “From Hotel School to the Celebrity Suite: My Career in the Casino Industry.” You can see the flyer here. Cyr is speaking at 2 PM on Thursday, April 30, in the Extended Study Area, which is on the first floor of Lied Library.

Lied Library is, of course, on UNLV’s campus, on the Swenson/Paradise side of Harmon.

Both events will be podcasted for the benefit of those who are unable to attend.
