On The Table
Tuesday November 18, at 7:30pm
Basement Lounge of Kilworth Chapel

Louisa added that: We will be hosting an open, interfaith dinner and discussion and this month’s topic is Cultural Appropriation and Appreciation. The goal of this conversation is to examine how our personal cultural identities have been appropriated, as well as how we’ve each been complicit in appropriation. We’re also going to be looking at how meaning is lost, gained, created, and defined when cultural elements are co-opted by other cultures. This is an interfaith event hosted by Lighthouse Christian Fellowship but open to the campus community (faculty and staff included). Despite it being an interfaith event in nature, the questions and discussion will allow for all in attendance to participate and contribute. Hope to see you all there!
