"Hidden Lives: Social Marginalization in the Ancient Greek World"

Thu. October 19, 2023, 02:30 PM - 264 Baldwin Hall
Lecture with Dr. Carrie L. Sulosky Weaver. Studies of the ancient Greek world have typically focused on the life histories of elite males as they have made the most distinct mark on ancient Greek literature, art, and material culture. As a result, the voices of non-Greeks, the physically impaired, the impoverished, and the generally disenfranchised have been silent, which has substantially complicated the creation of a historical narrative of these marginalized groups.

Why Artists Won’t Stay #Canceled

Thu. October 19, 2023, 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM - Peabody Hall Room 115, featuring Dr. Mary Beth Willard of Weber State University
During the #metoo movement, many fans wondered if they should cancel artists, denying them money and attention in response to wrongdoing. Some artists were canceled, but five years later, many are returning, and some, like Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K., are embracing their new counterculture status. I argue that this is in part a direct result of the nature of canceling and social media, which rewards polarizing discourse and incentivizes the artists to double-down on their behavior.
Event type: Lecture    Host: The lecture is sponsored by the Department of Philosophy and the Internal Auditing Division, and it is part of Ethics Awareness Week. Visit: https://phil.franklin.uga.edu/events/content/2023/why-artists-wont-stay-canceled-mary-beth-willard-weber-sta

EECP Philosopher's Walk: Thomas Farm Preserve

Sat. April 27, 2024, 08:30 AM - 12:00 PM - Thomas Farm Preserve Watkinsville, GA 30621
Join us for a tour and development talk of the Thomas Farm Preserve. The City of Watkinsville is in the process of preserving the largest parcel of undeveloped land in the city, the 100-acre Thomas family farm. The new park will be equal to more than 4.5 percent of the entire land area of Watkinsville, and more than doubles the city’s usable greenspace while preserving critical acres of wetlands designated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Carpooling is available.
