~ By Geoff Thurner, Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology

Dr. José Lúcio and Dr. José Chilão, authors of the book “Mar Calmo Nunca Fez Bom Marinheiro” (Calm Sea Never made a Good Sailor), will speak at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 7, in the Fresno State Ag One conference room (2910 E. Barstow Ave.).

Their book examines how the extension of the exclusive economic ocean zone will effect Portuguese development, especially in the Azores, for port and nautical tourism, wave energy, mining and other new industries.

Dr. Chilão is a member of the Portuguese Bar Association, and his main scientific interests and research focuses on geopolitics, geo-economics, North Atlantic topics, European defense and security.

Dr. Lúcio teaches geo-economics, political geography and urban and regional economics courses at NOVA University of Lisbon, and has had his works published in more than 90 research journals and magazines.

Reservations are recommended to assure seating and a complimentary parking passcode to the first 50 guests. An opportunity to ask questions and meet the authors from Lisbon will be available at a post-event book signing.

The event is sponsored by the Fresno State Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology, the College of Arts and Humanities, the Craig School of Business and the College of Social Sciences. INFO: http://bit.ly/FS17-lucio-chilao ; RSVP: Ag One, 559.278.4266 or agone@csufresno.edu.
