Event Time and Date

Tuesday, April 25 2017, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

How can one live a life of meaning and purpose?

What makes one a good person, a good friend, a good citizen?

What do we owe each other, our communities, and ourselves?

These enduring questions form the basis of the Humanities. With the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, SUNY Oswego is simulcasting a series of interactive events in collaboration with Hunter College, CUNY, and is pleased to co-host a series of events to create dialogues among veterans, their families, and other members of the community. Explore classic works of literature, history, and philosophy to illuminate moral transformation, injury, and repair resulting from the experience of war. Join us for different book discussions and public events each month from now until May.

Professor Mark Zelcer of the Philosphy Department will be streaming the talks on Campus in Oswego and will be interacting with the speakers via Skype.

If you have any questions, or would like to get free copies of the books, please contact professor Zelcer at mark.zelcer@oswego.edu
