Bridge to Social Change @ Lupton Hall Auditorium
February 25, 2015 @ 6:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Shirley Franklin will be joining us for a moderated question & answer session focusing on two kinds of responsibility: responsibility to that which is social, and responsibility for that which is social. Responsibility “to” means the individual or group does not determine the nature of the responsibility, but rather assumes it by virtue of their membership in “the social”. Responsibility “for” means an individual is accountable or answerable for what “the social” is or will become; the responsibility is for shaping, determining or effecting “the social” rather than simply doing what “the social” wants. We believe that Shirley Franklin had experience in both areas of responsibility during her years as Mayor and continues to be an agent of change through leadership roles throughout Atlanta.

March 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Lecture by Antonio Mántica ’15, Physics Major, Oglethorpe University Time is a very curious thing and it gives rise to many questions. Is time measurable in distinct increments, or does it flow continuously? And how do we travel through it? We know that we can move forward in it (we have no choice), but can we jump forward in time? Can we go backward in time? Mántica will walk you through the history and current understandings of how time functions and how we can use that knowledge to inform our experience of it.
