  • Image preview 4:00pm - 5:00pm: Change or Charity? Exploring the Potential Unintended Consequences of Doing Good

    When many of us see individuals struggling or widespread social problems, we are compelled to intervene. What happens, however, when we don’t utilize a critical lens to examine the potential unintended consequences of our well-intentioned actions? This interactive workshop will interrogate the differences between charity and change. Together, we will develop best change practices for social justice advocates and activists.

Philosophy

March 6th, 2015

  • Image preview 3:30pm - 5:00pm: Implicit Bias and the Circumstances of Moral Responsibility by Manuel R. Vargas (University of San Francisco)
    Implicit bias is a partially unconscious, partially automatic, and often negative evaluative tendency directed at individuals, based on their apparent membership in a socially salient category or group. The phenomenon of implicit bias raises interesting questions for a theory of moral responsibility, in part because implicit bias and our reaction to it provide reasons for both blaming and not blaming agents who act on the bases of those biases. For example, on the one hand, implicit biases can appear to be largely outside the direct control of agents, and not expressive of their values or true selves. On the other hand, it is difficult to shake the sense that one’s discovery of, say, racist bias should give rise to a sense of guilt. How we should navigate these issues, and what they suggest about responsible agency more generally, is the subject of this talk.

Religious Studies

March 13th, 2015

  • Image preview 3:00pm: Religion/Modernity: Living on the Slash by Robert Orsi (Northwestern University)
    This lecture challenges the widespread agreement today among scholars of modern history and culture that modernity did not mean the end of religion, that modernity itself is a religious, as well as political and legal, project. This may be true, but such an account of the modern fails to capture the fate of special, supermundane beings since the sixteenth century: gods, ghosts, ancestors, spirits, demons, and so on. The “religion” that endured in modernity—that was legally codified, epistemologically sanctioned, and diagnosed as psychologically healthy—was purified of these beings. Modern “religion” consigned them to the past of the species and the infancy of the person. Looking at the experience of a Catholic survivor of clerical sexual abuse as she makes her way between the normative modern and “superstition,” which is the necessary other of the modern, the lecture considers what it means to live everyday life in a world of plural and incommensurate ontologies.

 

Rhetoric and Media

March 12th, 2015

March 13th, 2015

  • Image preview All Day: 2015 LPE Film Festival Submission Deadline
    The 2015 Lambda Pi Eta Film Festival is part of Lewis & Clark’s Festival of Scholars. This event aims to give student filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their work to the Lewis & Clark community, while providing newcomers to the field with a behind-the-scenes look at the visual media production process. Film is an important component of the Rhetoric & Media discipline, as it reflects the sociopolitical and cultural narratives competing for relevance at any given time. To learn about film is to learn about the world we live in! Join us in supporting the creativity of your fellow students, and get a taste for what film studies is all about!
