Tonight is our fifth annual Performing Arts Lecture Series featuring presentations by Jesse Oak Taylor from the Department of English, Jason Groves from the Department of Germanics, and Catherine Cole, our new Divisional Dean of the Arts, brought together and curated by School of Drama faculty Scott Magelssen and Stefka Mihaylova. 

COLLABORATION. OPPORTUNITY. ENGAGEMENT. What has traditionally been the purview of an education rooted in the arts and humanities is now being claimed by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). If education in STEM majors can cultivate the same skills that the arts and humanities has historically considered their own, and if STEM education can promote social justice as well as or better than the arts and humanities, what is the place of the latter in contemporary academia? 

This FREE event is taking place at the Jones Playhouse at 7:30pm. No RSVP necessary, just show up and be part of this emerging conversation about arts in academia.
