Thank you, Paula, for all you've done for the Humanities Division, and before that, for the English Department. We will miss you!

Please vote! It takes all of our voices to create a strong and truly representative government.

Philosophy for today, philosophy forever!

This is a wonderfully interesting interview with Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, author of Plato at the Googleplex, on the value of philosophy in the modern world, how it can affect us as individuals and as a society, and the ways in which we take philosophical advances for granted.

Philosophy is for everyone

In France, the study of philosophy is not merely an elective. It is essential.

This event is tonight. We'll see you at 7:30!
A Dialogue Between Daoism and Western Feminist Thought
Thu, April 9, 7:30pm – 9:00pm
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 307 

The English term "gender" lacks a clear counterpart in the Chinese language. However, intricacies that emerge with Chinese translation lend support to the case for the performativity of gender. Using careful readings of early Chinese texts, Professor Wang will explain how gender dynamics manifest in ancient Chinese practice. During her lecture, Professor Wang will engage critical aspects of the gender discussion such as the discursive nature of gender, the non-essential natures of polarities, the fluidity of self-identity, the "sexuate identity" and the non-exclusion or mutuality of genders, as they are found in the ancient Chinese texts.

Our speaker, Robin R. Wang, Ph.D., is a distinguished scholar and philosopher. Professor Wang is director of Asian-Pacific studies and professor of philosophy at Loyola Marymount University. She has a myriad of experiences such as consulting for museums, healthcare professionals, and the 2010 Karate Kid movie, regular presentations around the world, and numerous publications.
