Message to Undergraduate Students About Thursday lunch
Good Morning Everyone,
This week's Thursday Lunch will focus on the reading, viewing, and listening habits that you have found useful in the midst of all of the changes brought on by the present pandemic.
What aspect of the pandemic is not getting enough attention? What book or article or artwork have you found particularly illuminating of this concern? What pressing matters beyond coronavirus disease are too few people thinking about because thinking about the pandemic has taken up so much room in the minds of so many? What podcast or essay or film is worth making time for along these lines? What habits of thinking, viewing, writing, or resting have you found particularly bracing under our current circumstances? Which would you most recommend?
Please use this week's sign up sheet to indicate that you're coming to lunch, and to enter the book, essay, film, painting, et cetera that you want to recommend to the rest of us. We'll discuss them at lunch, and I'll share a compilation with everyone afterwards.
As usual, here’s the Zoom link (April 23 at Noon).
Bring a friend.
