Culture, Community, and Migration: Who Are We? 

Saturday, April 14th, 2018
9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Conway Hall (TETC) 153

What allows for us as humans to identify as part of a community? Is it a shared culture, or a sense of our common humanity? What do citizens of a multicultural society share with each other? What should they share? What are our obligations to our fellow citizens and non-citizens, for example refugees? These are some of the questions this year's symposium will try to address. We will draw on recent events in national and international politics and illuminate them through philosophical argument and reflection. While these topics have become hot-button issues, we will, as usual, reflect on them in a reasoned and civil way.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Jason D. Hill, Professor of Philosophy, DePaul University, Chicago 
  • Dr. Serena Parekh, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Northeastern University, Boston 

Sponsored by the SU Philosophical Society, the SU Philosophy Department, and SU alumni.
