Professor F.X. Charet is back at the library for his five-part lecture series beginning Friday, May 2. Come to the library for these thought-provoking lectures.
“The modern world is characterized by the rise of nationalism and competitive capitalism that created a largely secular culture, producing the highest standards of living in human history. At the same time tremendous demands were placed on growing populations that resulted in stresses, alienation and mental illness. This series will explore the intersection betweeen all of these factors.”
