Spotlight for the week of March 14
We’re spotlighting two events coming up this week that do what universities do best—accompany us through difficult conversations and guide us towards a deeper, more nuanced appreciation of the arts.
If following the news cycle has you feeling like we’re edging closer and closer to an apocalypse, you’re not alone. On Thursday, March 17th at 3:30pm, join three members of the CBU faculty in a discussion of Apocalypses. Dr. Leigh Johnson and Dr. James B. Wallace, members of the Religion and Philosophy Department, and Dr. Paul Haught, VP of Academics, will give brief reflections on the topic and then open conversation the audience. This event is virtual, no registration necessary.
Then, Friday through Sunday, you might want to lift your spirits at the University of Memphis’ Ninth Annual Memphis International Guitar Festival. During the day, local guitarists can sign up to take master classes with the artists and participate in a performance competition. Each evening at 7:30, the public can attend concerts by world-renowned guest artists from Cuba, Memphis, Poland, and China. Tickets and registration are available on the U of M website.
