Series II: Going Global: Life, Love & Work in the 21st Century (Fall 2013)

In the end … it’s love and it’s work – what else could there possibly be? (Maria Kalman, artist & author, echoing Freud)
In the 21st century, ‘global education’ is redundant – if it isn’t global, it isn’t an education. (George Forsythe, president of Westminster College)
It all turns on affection. (Wendell Berry, Kentuckian writer, farmer & activist, Jefferson Lecture 2012)

This is the second series of conversations in the Honors Salon. The first one was last spring. This fall it is also our contribution to International Education Week at WKU. Email Wolfgang to get the address (5 min from campus).
