Cassie Quigley (Education) and Stephen Quigley (English) will launch their Finnish Nature Studies kiosk in Global Hub. The interactive kiosk plays a short trailer to their film project, "[Un]disciplining Environmental Education" and links audiences to their more recent work incorporating code and computer science education into traditional Finnish nature studies curriculum. Both projects examine how [un]disciplining environmental education can inform environmental policy. Various parts of this research have been funded by the European Studies Center, the University Center for International Studies, Pitt’s Year of Data and Society, and the Grable Foundation.

Corpus Christi is the story of 20-year-old Daniel who experiences a spiritual transformation while living in a youth detention centre. He wants to become a priest but this is impossible because of his criminal record. When he is sent to work at a carpenter’s workshop in a small town, on arrival he dresses up as a priest and accidentally takes over the local parish. The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher is an opportunity for the local community to begin the healing process after a tragedy that happened there.
