    ‘Bring It – Art, Philosophy and Protest as a Way of Life’

    The Department of Philosophy welcomes Jeremy Bendik-Keymer, associate professor of philosophy at Case Western Reserve University, leading a workshop titled “Bring It – Art, Philosophy and Protest as a Way of Life.”

    What does it mean to be democratically engaged? Many folks today are asking themselves this question – and at the center of discussion is the philosophy of protest. One of the most interesting developments surrounding protest has come from the quarter of what is called “socially engaged art.” In this workshop, Bendik-Keymer will discuss some examples of socially engaged art, placing them alongside a sketch of ancient philosophy as a way of life, organizing, activism and the critique of neoliberalism.

    This workshop is co-sponsored by the Lisska Center for Scholarly Engagement. A complimentary lunch will be provided. To RSVP, please fill in the linked RSVP formby FRIDAY, MARCH 10. For more information, contact Steve Vogel at vogel@denison.edu.
