When members of the DePauw community share ideas outside the classroom, it magnifies the energy of their intellectual interaction. This page collects sundry ways through which concepts become rich conversations.
Fall 2012 Living the Liberal Arts: The Crucible Conversations.
Conversations have arisen amongst the faculty about an informal interdisciplinary theme for Fall 2012. Arthur Miller's play The Crucible, and its key ethical dilemma of 'what will you sign your name to', or ‘what is your name worth’, has become the initial focus. The various academic and performance events listed below comprise this organic, evolving initiative. Check back for updates!
