The Humanities faculty will conduct a Teach-In from 5-6:30 p.m.tonight in Rueckert Auditorium. Concerned about the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, the rise of ISIS, and the recent rash of worldwide terrorist attacks? Want more information about what's actually going on? This informal panel discussion and Q&A, led by Siena faculty, will focus on understanding and contextualizing these events and the political and social responses to them. The teach-in is open to all faculty, staff and students, and hopefully will serve as a starting point for productive discussions of these complex issues. Pizza will be served.
Jen Kling, Assistant Professor of Philosophy, has shared the following articles and video for those who want to learn more, either before or after the teach-in:
