On November 14th, 16th, and 20th, the Queer Resource Center and various campus partnerships will be working together to engage our campus in recognition of the Transgender Day of Remembrance. On this day, which occurs annually on November 20th, we will memorialize those who have lost their lives because of transphobia and where it intersects with misogyny, misandry, race, class, and ability among others, and to bring attention to the continued violence endured by the Trans* community.

Transgender Day of Remembrance

The intention of the event is to remember the lives lost as well as to honor and celebrate them as we work to create resistance with our existence, raise awareness and encourage action. Refreshments will be provided. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters will be present at this event.



Feminist Fight Club: Transfeminism
Date/Time: Tuesday, Nov. 14th at 5:30-7:00pm

Campus Theme Presentation: Truth: The Definitive Question

Submitted by Daniel Morris
Posted on Nov 13 , 2017

Come to our next Campus Theme: Truth presentation Thursday November 16, 2017 • 7 pm in the Meese Conference Room in the Hannon Library.

Presenters: Prakash Chenjeri, Devora Shapiro, and Justin Harmon: SOU Philosophy Department

Free and open to all. See description below.

Truth, like knowledge, is difficult to define. No matter how well-crafted a definition of truth may be, the question immediately follows but ‘is it true’? A panel of three SOU philosophers will examine this timeless and timely topic: Is truth objective (absolute) or subjective (relative)? Many have critiqued our Modern and Post-Modern conceptions of truth—and for good reason. However, there is good reason—and a real need—to reconsider the role and worth of a robust conception of truth in our newly post-truth world. The panel will conclude with an overview of the faults of historical and historically accepted accounts of truth and consider the difficulties and pitfalls of a post-truth discourse, offering potential directions to pursue when rebuilding a desperately needed new—more just, robust, and sustainable—conception of Truth.
