Human Library event this FridayApril 2, 2013
Here is a message from one of our PHRE majors, Sophia Allen, about an interesting PHRE-related event she is coordinating this Friday:
This Friday, April 5 from 10:00am-3:00pm in the SUB Activities Room I am putting on an event called The Human Library (http://humanlibrary.org/). This is an event designed to promote conversation and understanding and to minimize (and idealistically eliminate) prejudice. I will have “books” (students acting as representatives of their people groups) throughout the day for individuals to come and have approximately 20-30 minute conversations about their culture and beliefs. Some titles are: Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, Nepalese Buddhist, Catholic, Mormon, and Jewish. Some of these are directly related to philosophy and religion. This is a great opportunity to learn about other cultures or other belief systems as well as about other people.
