Creative/Critical: English Professors’ Work and Playlists

majors committee panelBen Hornung ’18 writes in with an event sponsored by the English Majors Committee:

Do you want to meet English professors whose courses you might not have had? Do you want to know what your professors are into outside of the classroom–food, music, movies, art, sports? Do you want to enjoy free food and interesting conversation?

Come by Downey House this Friday at 4:30 PM to hear some English professors talk about how their scholastic and extra-curricular efforts overlap and feed into each other. All majors welcome for what should be a dope exploration of the importance of leading a life both analytic and artistic. Also, food!

to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.
