Philosophy Social Justice Open House Luncheon

phil sj trackInterested in the philosophy major?

Come and learn about Philosophy as a major and about our new Social Justice track. The social justice track recognizes that philosophers since antiquity have not only asked questions about what social institutions are needed to achieve justice, but have also worked as social reformers to promote social justice.  Philosophical methods of conceptual and contextual analyses and careful argumentation provide important tools for grappling with real world injustices.  The social justice track allows students to develop their philosophical skills to address questions of human rights, equality, and social responsibility. More info available here.

Date: Tuesday, February 23
Time: 12 noon
Place: Russell House

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
