Join us on Monday, February 27 at 3 p.m. in Powers Recital Hall as Dr. Lee Templeton presents:
“The Consolation of Teaching: Grappling with the Ongoing Problem of Our Own Identity “
Do you find yourself experiencing a creeping sense of existential dread about the current state of higher education and your place in it? Do you wonder what it means to teach in the face of numerous challenges, such as the increasing corporatization of colleges and universities, a growing public skepticism regarding the value of the liberal arts, the privileging of short-term profit and the cultivation of “useful” skills over the imaginative, creative, and communal aspects of education? If so, then I have good news. . .wait. *checks notes* No, sorry. No good news. But join me anyway as I flail about in an attempt to come to terms with teaching as an act of consolation, an act of connection and healing and profound engagement with the humane.
