Event Details

Inaugural Lecture of the Provost Lecture Series

First published in 1899, William James' book Talks to Teachers has remained influential for more than a century because of James' unique insights as a psychologist, philosopher, and beloved teacher at Harvard. Dr. Norris Frederick, James A. Jones Chair of Philosophy and Religion at Queens, will discuss the relevance of the book today for pedagogy and the teaching life.

Dr. Frederick is a longtime professor at Queens who has also served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and as Vice President for Academic Affairs. His major interests in teaching philosophy include ethics, the philosophy of religion, and philosophy as a way of life (including existentialism and pragmatism). The recipient of three teaching awards from Queens, he has published and lectured both nationally and locally on the thought and life of William James.

World Languages Film: Ixcanul

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
