  • White Privilege: What is it Really? How Can it Be Used to Help Others Who Lack That Privilege? - Thursday, January 30, 2020
    In this webinar, Dr. Fuller explains the term “white privilege”—who has it and why. Anthropologists use the term “enculturation” to describe how we learn what family, community, and society look like. The norms we enculturate as children may incorporate implicit biases which become invisible to us as adults. Until recently, white men predominantly created institutions and set the agenda in United States government, business, and higher education. For much of the population, there may be comfort in this familiar norm. But this frame of reference chafes and harms many others. The term “white privilege” is used to raise awareness that one person’s norm can be another person’s harm.
  • Dante Meets Einstein at Café Paradiso: Renewing the Vows Between Humanities and Science - Thursday, February 20, 2020
    Dante’s narrative poem The Divine Comedy and Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity were both inspired by the octagonal mosaic ceiling of the Baptistry of Saint John in Florence, Italy. Gazing upward, both Einstein and Dante realized the same beauty in two different but unified worlds: the arts and the sciences. Over time, this union has dissolved into the arts or the sciences. Grab your seat at Café Paradiso and watch Dante and Einstein meet for the first time in this webinar! Participate in a conversation that renews the vows between beauty, art, poetry, science, and mathematics, demonstrating how the humanities and social sciences are a critical component in inspiring curiosity and creativity within the sciences.
