Do it Tonight: How Do We Talk about the Hard Stuff?


Project Open Voices (POV), a coalition of students providing a platform for open dialogue on campus, is hosting its first discussion of the year.  The three main points that will be considered are:

2. How do we respond to sometimes well-intended, yet problematic behavior from friends?
3. From a position of privilege, how do we talk about marginalized groups we don’t identify with or belong to?

And don’t forget, POV has extended the deadline for narrative submissions until December 1st.  Get those narratives in!

Do It Tonight: Bilingual Poetry Reading with Hugo Mujica

Argentinian poet, essayist and writer Hugo Mujica will be giving a reading of his award-winning poetry tonight in both Spanish and English. Mujica is one of Argentina’s top writers, with twenty volumes of poetry published in over 15 countries with a wide range of writing on topics including anthropology, philosophy and fiction.  The range of experience that informs his work goes from studying visual arts in Greenwich Village to a seven year vow of silence he took as a Trappist monk (and while that sounds like something I would make up to have him sound more impressive, it is not).  This event is sponsored by the NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorship and Hubbard Funds.
