Last Lecture Series – Jeff Entwistle

Given the opportunity, what would faculty say if they had one last lecture to give? This series features six of our distinguished professors doing just that. This month features Jeff Entwistle, Professor, Theatre and Dance, “We All Need Theatre in Our Lives and in Our Future”.

Inspiration for Entwistle’s talk will come from three major ideas — the emotional connection of theatre, the fact that in the theatre an audience can observe even the worst of human behavior without fear for their safety, and the probability of a serious decrease in human interaction as society moves ever deeper into the digital age.

Last Lecture Series – Derek Jeffreys

Given the opportunity, what would faculty say if they had one last lecture to give? This series features six of our distinguished professors doing just that. This month’s feature is Derek Jeffreys, Professor, Humanistic Studies, “The Mystery of the Person: Teaching Philosophy and Religion in a Maximum-Security Prison”

Jeffreys is the author of books on religion, ethics and torture. To gain further understanding, he visited and spent time in prisons and now volunteers teaching philosophy and religion with the Green Bay Correctional Institution and the Brown County Jail. “… I find teaching prison inmates deeply rewarding,” Jeffreys says. “Inmates have few educational opportunities, and are hungry for knowledge. They are eager to engage in philosophical and religious discussions.” For more, see Jeffreys’ full comments.
