End of the Semester Events

The end of the semester is approaching, but we still have some wonderful Arts & Ideas events you can check out this week!

On Monday afternoon, from 2-3pm in AS158, Professor Ross will be discussing cognitive psychologist and linguist Steven Pinker’s new book on Rationality. After proving that the world is becoming more civilized and that reason does, indeed, triumph, Pinker now takes an optimistic look at principles that every adult should know but doesn’t get taught very well in school.

Then, Monday night at 7:30pm in Convocation Hall, the Lewis Chamber Choir and Cantabile Women’s Choir will host their last concert of the year. Enjoy a variety of choral harmony spanning the ages from the Renaissance to contemporary music. The concert will also be livestreamed here.

On Wednesday night, Lewis hosts a theatrical production that supports community leaders who are impacted by carceral systems. Motus’ JustUs is a collection of artfully crafted autobiographical monologues that expose the devastating impact of the criminal legal system and inspire action toward a vision of true justice. This performance is not to be missed! The event is begins at 7:30pm in the Philip Lynch Theater, and will also be live-streamed here.

Finally, English Studies will host their Biannual Student Creative Writing Showcase on Thursday from 2-3:30pm in the Langert Family Dining Room in the Brother James Gaffney Student Center. Students in this semester’s Intermediate Creative Writing Workshop class will be sharing their creative works, including fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry.

This is your last chance of the semester to check out a great variety of interesting and amazing Arts & Ideas events. So be sure to take a break from all your studying and paper writing this week to check them out!
