The Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute presents

A Faculty Development Roundtable Discussion

Shakespeare, Dali, and Entrepreneurship: Blending of the Arts and Business for Better Pedagogy

Wednesday, April 17, 12:45pm-2:15pm, Newman Library building Room 765

 

 

From:  Mikhail Gershovich, Director, Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute

This interdisciplinary roundtable will explore ways in which business and literature courses can draw on each other as a way to enhance the intellectual and practical skills of students. For example, how could the study of corporate strategies benefit from a case study of The Merchant of Venice or Julius Caesar? How can literature students hone communication skills by examining plot and character through an entrepreneurial lens? How might analyzing a Dali painting and Dali’s approach to producing art inform one’s understanding of taking risks, communicating a vision, or working across business disciplines? Our conversation aims to find creative and practical points of connection among these disciplines. Our faculty speaker will be Thomas Lyons, Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship and the Lawrence N. Field Family Chair in Entrepreneurship.

 

Lunch will be served. Adjuncts will be compensated for their time at the non-teaching adjunct rate.
