The Politics of Pleasure: 9/20

Posted on September 19, 2022 | Filed under Archive

The Politics of Pleasure: Live Webinar Broadcast followed by Discussion

We will stream the webinar (2-3PM), and then hold our own local discussion of the ideas and their implications (until 3:30PM). Join us on Tuesday, Sept. 20, in Campus Center 206.

“As an environmental and denuclearization activist, [Kate] Soper noticed a worrisome pattern: efforts to green the economy often sound like calls for making do with less and giving up modern pleasures. To Soper, this gets it exactly wrong. [S]he argues…for an “alternative hedonism” that sees “post-growth living” as an opportunity for greater pleasure, not less.”
“Modern life is immiserating, sickening, isolating, and exhausting, Soper contends, creating desires that consumption can never fulfill. Designing simpler ways of living—built around local community and abundant free time—could make us happier and healthier while giving our overextended planet a new lease on life.”

ABOUT THE PANELISTS
Kate Soper (Emerita Professor of Philosophy at London Metropolitan University)
Lynne Segal (Emerita Anniversary Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies)
Organized by The Boston Review and The Philosopher.

The NSF STEM Team wants to know about your experience on campus. With your help, the Allegheny NSF researchers aim to create a supportive, sustainable STEM cohort environment. Surveys/focus groups aim to poll students who intend on majoring in STEM regarding their STEM experience on campus. Thus, your experience is vital in creating and shaping future cohorts.

One interval consists of one in-person 30-minute survey and one in-person 50-minute focus group within the same semester. All students will receive free lunch and a $20 gift card for each interval completed within the same semester. Eligibility: First-year students (class of 2026) who intend to major in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Math, Neuroscience, or Physics are eligible for the NSF STEM study. This study is IRB-approved.

Please contact Dr. Ivelitza Garcia (igarcia@allegheny.edu, 814-332-5357) or Dr. Lauren French (lfrench@allegheny.edu, 814-332-3306) to participate in the survey.

There is nothing to prepare in advance; auditioners will read from the script.

Still unsure about taking Arabic???—More reasons to take ARAB 110!

Posted on August 21, 2022 | Filed under Archive

If you love art and calligraphy, Arabic is a beautiful language to read and write (just check out the calligraphy!).
Also, there are 22 Arabic-speaking countries that you could visit and use the Arabic that you learn! With so few Arabic speakers, there are scholarships that will pay for you to continue your study in the Middle East. So, if you ever wanted to travel to places like Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Dubai (in the United Arab Emirates) or thought about working (and having a leg up because you know the language) in any industry in business, engineering, medical, nonprofit and international relations, or a government career, give Arabic a try!
