  • Film: Miss Representation

    Tuesday, September 24, 7:00pm-8:30pm at Robert and Pearle Ragsdale Center, Jones Auditorium

     
    While women have made great strides in leadership over the past few decades, they make up only 18% of the U.S. Congress in 2013. Written and directed by Jennifer Newsom, this documentary exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. It challenges the media's portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and affect women and girls' views of themselves. A discussion will be held after the film.

  • Nostra Aetate with Francis Clooney, SJ, Director of the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard Divinity School

    Thursday, September 26, 7:00pm-8:30pm at John Brooks Williams Natural Sciences Center-South Building, Room 186

    In marking the 50th anniversarty of Vatican II and Nostra Aetate, we may be tempted to adapt a simple "then and now" perspective. Much has happened in the intervening years. This lecture examines four generations: those mature in the 1960s; those who came of age in the decade after Council; those growing up thereafter, many of whom left the institution or chose traditional Catholicism; and today's generation, who are spiritual searchers with myriad religious possibilities. Depending on our generation, the promises of Nostra Aetate may seem hopeful, dangerous, timid or quaint.
