  • Wednesday Wisdom For These Days

    Join Spiritual and Religious Life Dean Mark R. Orten for a half-hour of quiet contemplation with reading and music for our times. Intentional silence and guided meditation will be interspersed with music and readings from secular worldviews and sacred traditions to open our awareness and to find strength and perspective for living during pandemical, political, racial, ecological and other upheavals. Until gatherings can be held live, connect each Wednesday by Zoom. All are welcome.

  • Carol Rifelj Faculty Lecture: Stefano Mula - Politics, Literature, and Translation: Ignazio Silone's Early Reception

    Stefano Mula, Department of Italian, will give a talk as part of the 2020-21 Carol Rifelj Faculty Lecture Series.

His novel Fontamara was first published in German, while the Italian version was and still is almost impossible to find in Italy. The early novellas were also first published in German, and the Italian original was lost.
