All students, faculty members, and other members of the Santa Fe College community are invited to participate in the third of our ongoing “Times Talks” on Wednesday, November 18 at 1 pm in the Santa Fe Library lobby.
Times Talks are open conversations about important and controversial issues in the news, and are part of Santa Fe’s efforts to promote greater civic engagement on campus. They are an opportunity for students, faculty members, and other members of the campus community to sit as equals in a casual atmosphere (over some pizza) and to exchange views on important issues in a casual, informal and civil environment.
Times talks are open conversations moderated each time by a different volunteer faculty or student facilitator.
These events provide a wonderful opportunity to participate in the sort of vigorous and engaging discussion of important issues that is needed in a democracy.
Our second Times Talk will be moderated by Professor of History Bryan Wuthrich. The topic will be the recent New York Times articles on the the University of Missouri
If you are interested and are considering attending, please RSVP to Prof. Alan Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org. A few days before the event, you will receive an announcement of the topic and a couple of recent New York Times articles to provide you with background for the discussion.
Immediately following this talk, at 2pm will be another Times Talk on recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
