When: Wednesday, July 18th; 9 am - 4 pm.
Join Dr. Sarah Ruden -- translator of the Aeneid, author of The Face of Water, and renowned cultural critic -- for an all-day contemplation of the myriad ways our curricula can cultivate sanity and decorum in public discourse. Relying on her experiences in traditional Quaker meetings, legal studies, and university classrooms, Dr. Ruden will guide this conversation about what proper classroom discourse looks like, how it can be achieved, and what that might mean for our students as they move into the culture. With a special emphasis on proper decorum, the place of formal logic, and the problem with modern discourse, this pre-conference will be a mixture of lecure and conversation, thus simultaneously contemplating and modeling the ideas being discussed.
Breakfast and lunch included.
