Domestic violence. Marital discord. Racism. Dysfunctional family dynamics. Class warfare. For a small town, Pagford sure has some big problems.
How do these issues show up in our community – or do they? The MIT Libraries and Alpha Chi Omega invite you to hear campus voices (student, faculty, and staff) share personal perspectives on this semester’s MIT Reads selection and its relevance to our lives at MIT. Come prepared to listen, to share, to think, and to compare notes on J.K. Rowling’s first post-Potter novel. Our panelists are:
Rima Das ‘18, Alpha Chi Omega
William Caruso ’18, First Generation Program
René Andrés García Franceschini ‘19, CASE (Class Awareness Support and Equality)
Daniel J. Debowy, M.D., Ph.D, Psychiatrist, Mental Health and Counseling
Vienna Rothberg, Peer Education and Prevention Specialist, Violence Prevention and Response
Leona Samson, Uncas and Helen Whitaker Professor Emeritus, Departments of Biology and Biological Engineering
Open to the entire MIT community; sign up here to add this event to your calendar.
Please contact Nina Davis-Millis by April 15 if you have accessibility needs.
