Colloquium: Veiled Threats & Beyond the Veil

Colloquium: Veiled Threats & Beyond the Veil
April 29, 2011

Among its efforts to nourish collegial dialogue across disciplinary boundaries among faculty and students, EKU Libraries is hosting hour-long, informally moderated colloquiums on selected Fridays at 3:30 p.m. in the new Crabbe Library Research and Instruction Commons Conference Room, 204G.

Each colloquium session is devoted to text, video or audio material chosen by a faculty member who moderates the discussion. The material may be of any subject, scholarly or topical, peer-reviewed or popular, as well as original work. The only requirement is that the item(s) under discussion be accessible online (including any of EKU Libraries’ many subscription resources).

On Friday, April 29, Dr. Minh Nguyen will moderate discussion of Veiled Threats and Beyond the Veil: A Response by acclaimed philosopher Martha Nussbaum (a previous, as well as forthcoming, EKU Chautauqua Lecture speaker) on “why the proposed bans of the Muslim burqa in Europe are unworthy of liberal democracies.”
