This week at UW-Parkside
Wednesday, Nov. 28, at noon, UW-Parkside student Monica Scholle facilitates a post-screening discussion of the program "Who Wants to be a Porn Star? Sex and Violence in Today's Pornography Industry." This slide show produced by Stop Porn Culture! was written and produced by Professors Gail Dines of Wheelock College, Rebecca Whisnant of the University of Dayton, and Robert Jensen of the University of Texas-Austin.
This is Scholle's project for the course Gender, Race, and Class in Media (COMM 463). It takes place in room 132 of the Rita Tallent Picken Regional Center for Arts and Humanities.
"Who Wants to Be a Porn Star?" contains explicit material. You must be at least 18 years old to attend.
Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 11 a.m., students in Nick Tryling's Advanced Expository Writing class showcase their work. Each student briefly reads from one of their pieces this semester--a profile, an essay (inspired by a gallery show), a "braided narrative," or a reflection on a campus or community event. The program continues through 1 p.m. with a short intermission at 11:50 a.m. and takes place in the E. H. Mathis Gallery.
Bring your lunch, listen to our students' polished writing, and view the Todd Deutsch photo exhibition "Gamers" featuring images of video gamers playing continuously for 48 hours! Please join us over lunch to hear students reading their personal works.
Monday, Dec. 3, at noon, the Perspectives on Religious Issues series concludes its fall semester programs with the discussion "Religion, Law, and the Question of Freewill." UW-Parkside Emeritus Professor of Philosophy Wayne G. Johnson serves as speaker for this event.
Professor Johnson will support a determinist view which holds we do not have freewill; nevertheless, we can be held morally responsible. He will also claim this view is compatible with some religious traditions.Perspectives on Religious Issues forums are free and open to the public. This program is held in room 131 of The Rita and parking is free during the event. For more information, call Professor Johnson at 262-639-7149.
