Announcements

Open House for the Program in Religion and Culture

To: The Baruch College Community

From: Professor Michael Plekon

Faculty are invited to come for the Religion and Culture Program's open house on Thursday, Feb. 26, from 1 pm to 2 pm in Room 14-269 of the Newman Vertical Campus. The program has been around for decades, and its original purpose remains: to give students the opportunity to learn about world traditions of faith in an academic setting of serious scholarship, reasoned discourse and humane understanding. While religion is often blamed for horrible events in our world, we usually are ignorant of what traditions actually teach, of their worship, rites, ethics. Religious traditions continue to shape literature and art, culture and politics. They frame social institutions as well as relationships. With the incredible diversity of the Baruch community, the courses in the program, as well as related courses in WSAS departments, offer settings where the history, thinking and action of these tradition can be objectively examined.

Please come and meet some of the faculty who teach in the program, hear their experiences, learn about courses offered and consider participating. Students are of course welcome. For more information, contact Professor Michael Plekon at 646-312-4460.
