WU-Unplugged: Energy Competition (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Students for Sustainability is putting on the second annual, WU-Unplugged Energy Competition. Each residence hall will compete against one another for the highest percentage of energy reduction during the month of October (Oct. 1st-28th).
Dead City (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Pelton Theatre

Dead City by Sheila Callaghan. Samantha Blossom, a chipper woman in her 40s, wakes in her Upper East Side apartment one June morning to find her life being narrated over public radio. So begins this 90-minute comic drama — a hyper-theatrical riff on the novel Ulysses, occurring exactly 100 years to the day after Joyce’s jaunt through Dublin.

Event Image Faculty Colloquium: Stephen Patterson
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Presenter: Stephen Patterson, George H. Atkinson Professor of Religious and Ethical Studies
Title: Here Come the Androgynes, Again!

Abstract:
Some may recall Steve Patterson’s first installment on androgyny in early Christianity–where the androgyne symbolized love. Now the second installment: androgyny also symbolized power. Masculine sexuality in the ancient world was all about masculine power. Virility and power are still linked in the construction of masculinity today. But what if a woman could have male power? Believe it or not, early Christians were toying with the idea… and he’s got (more) pictures! This material is part of Patterson’s new book, The Forgotten Creed (OUP), due out on October 1.

Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
