Breakfast Colloquium: Can This Add up to an Education?

  • The Bagel Factory 420 South Craig Street Pittsburgh, PA, 15213 United States (map)

Do you ever feel that your college education is just one damn thing after another? Does the maximization of opportunity seem to diminish the overall experience? Does the ultimate purpose of your chosen discipline elude you? If you have wrestled with any of these tensions, you'll enjoy talking with Steven Justice, Chancellor's Professor of English at University of California, Berkeley, and Senior Fellow of the Berkeley Institute. Prof. Justice knows how to talk shop. What shop? This strange university shop, where we try simultaneously to get an education, be professionalized, seek wisdom, build community, and experience joy. Prof. Justice will talk briefly about a few practical tools for making a coherent experience out of college, and then open it up to conversation.

To RSVP either e-mail or confirm as "going" on our Facebook event.
