Series Launch
The Person: Action & Influence:
The Two Questions of A Liberal Education

Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 12-1 pm CST

There are two central questions of any liberal education: What is true? And how should I live? 

These are the guiding questions of our new video series: The Person: Action and Influence. Join us as we together watch the first session together; after the presentation, the series director, Dr. Shannon Valenzuela, will join us for a live conversation, moderated by Dr. Michael West.

This is a Virtual Encore event, co-sponsored by the UD Office of Alumni Affairs. 

What It Means to be Human:
A Conversation About the Body, Medicine, and Bioethics

Thursday, February 11, 2021, 2-3 pm CST, on zoom

 

In O. Carter Snead’s new book, What It Means to Be Human: The Case for the Body in Public Bioethics, he recasts debates over abortion, reproduction, and end-of-life decisions and situates them within a framework of embodiment and dependence. Avoiding typical dichotomies of conservative-versus-liberal and secular-versus-religious, Professor Snead rethinks how the law represents human experiences so that it might govern more wisely, justly, and humanely.


Professor Snead (Notre Dame) will be joined by pediatrician and philosophy professor Dr. William Stigall (University of Dallas) in this conversation at the intersection of law, philosophy, and medicine. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Michael West of the Liberal Learning for Life Program.
 

This event is hosted by the Liberal Learning for Life Program at the University of Dallas.
