TEARS IN THE RAIN: A Conversation about Technology and the Humanities, December 3, 2013 from 5-6 p.m. in GC 107. The SUU Department of Foreign Languages & Philosophy invites you to join Doctors Todd Mack (SUU), Dale Pratt (BYU), and Juan Carlos Martín (Stonehill College) for an interactive conversation (in English) about technology and the humanities. The professors will set the stage with short presentations based on Rosa Montero's 2010 sci-fi novel Lágrimas en la lluvia (Tears in the Rain) and its accompanying graphic novel. This Blade Runner-inspired story features a replicant detective in search of a serial killer in a future dystopian Madrid. Following the presentations there will be ample time for discussion.
Congratulations to our outstanding students and scholarship winners! 2013 graduates Fred Bland (German), Carrie Johnson (Spanish), Ariel Vigil (French), and Kimberly Ward (Philosophy) received awards for academic achievement from the College of Humanities & Social Sciences. Continuing students Dayci Patterson and Collette Wick received departmental scholarships for next school year. We wish them all continued success in future endeavors.
