Aquinas Lecture in Philosophy – Plato as a Guide to Understanding Comedy and Tragedy, on Stage and in Human Life

DATE:   26/1/17
TIME:   4:00 PM
LOCATION:   Brian Mulroney Hall Room 101

Dr. Eli Diamond, Dalhousie University
Thursday, January 26 at 4 pm
Brian Mulroney Hall Room 101

While Aristotle's Poetics is by far the most influential source on Ancient Greek drama, in this year’s Aquinas Lecture, Dr. Diamond will argue that there is no better guide to understanding the meaning of Greek tragedy and comedy than Plato's Symposium.
 
Plato, through the speeches of the comic poet Aristophanes and the tragic poet Agathon, articulates with great and unrecognized precision the relation, in both comedy and tragedy, between human life (in its interpersonal and political dimension) and transcendent principles. Yet the interest in Plato's reading of the comic and tragic perspectives on life far exceeds the realm of literary criticism. At issue are two opposed visions of the meaning of human existence; one of the main goals of Platonic philosophy is the discovery of a metaphysical framework which can draw these tragic and comic visions into one view.
 
Dr. Eli Diamond is an Associate Professor, Ancient Philosophy in the Department of Classics at Dalhousie University. Diamond earned his bachelor of arts at the University of King’s College and a masters of arts at Dalhousie University. During his doctoral studies on Aristotle at Northwestern University, he studied in Freiburg and Paris. 
 
At Dalhousie University, Diamond teaches Ancient Greek Philosophy and Greek language and the focus of his research is Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy. He has also taught in the Departments of Philosophy at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College (Memorial University) and St. Thomas University.

Theatre St. Thomas Production: No White Picket Fence

DATE:   1/2/17
TIME:   7:30 PM
LOCATION:   Black Box Theatre, Sir James Dunn Hall

We’ve all heard of “foster kids,” children shuttled between group homes and foster families after living with their birth parents was deemed unsafe or otherwise not in their best interests. But when they enter adulthood, when they “age out,” what do they have to say about their time in care and transitioning out of it? What are their experiences in their own words? NO WHITE PICKET FENCE sheds light on the lives of real foster kids who are now young women living well.

“I have a very different view of what I think family is. I don’t think of it, it’s mom and dad, a couple kids, a dog, and white picket fence.” (Emma)

WHEN: February 1-4 (Wed-Sat), 2017 at 7:30pm (plus a 2:00pm Saturday matinee)
DURATION: 95 minutes, plus a post-show talkback
LOCATION: Black Box Theatre, Sir James Dunn Hall (67 Dineen Drive), St. Thomas University
BUY TICKETS AT THE DOOR: $5 students/seniors, $10 general
RESERVE TICKETS BY EMAIL: theatrestthomas@gmail.com 
CONTACT: Dr. Robin C. Whittaker, TST Artistic Producer: rwhit@stu.ca

“One of the greatest challenges about living in care is never really feeling like you belong to anybody. It’s just like, you’re just placed there. And then you’re expected just to live your life.” (Amanda)

This production is a TST first! NO WHITE PICKET FENCE is a remarkable new “verbatim play” in which all of the dialogue originates, verbatim, from interviews with ten women who have experienced the foster care system and are now living well. The language is real and gripping.

“I’m just like proud of my memory. Knowing my whole life that I needed to remember everything … and then like I would write it in my mind, you know and put in a door and like put it away. And I would say when it’s time to go get it, you can go get it and it’ll be there.” (Lotus)

These women’s stories span their time before being taken into care, through their time in care, and to their current lives navigating the world as young adults. Their stories are charged with turmoil and suffering in their original family homes and later during impermanent arrangements in foster care and group homes. Yet, they highlight the women’s persistence moving toward living well on their own terms. These are stories of resistance, resilience, and strength of human spirit.

“We were taken away because someone said we weren’t safe and we need more consistency and we just get one hell swapped for another one.” (Lotus)

“Distilling hundreds of pages of interview transcripts from these amazing women has been a journey of its own,” says TST Artistic Producer Dr. Robin C. Whittaker, who will direct the play as part of a larger study by STU Social Work professor Dr. Sue McKenzie-Mohr and her team.

“I think the more sharing my story and providing the information about what I grew up in, the more educated people are going to be about the process and the more things will change.” (Alisha)

Please Note: This world premiere includes stories featuring emotional and violent experiences. Audience discretion is advised.

Prof. William Schabas will speak about International Criminal Courts as part of the the Annual Lodhi Memorial Lecture on February 16 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm in the Kinsella Auditorium, McCain Hall.

“The Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court entered into force on 1 July 2002, fifteen years ago,” Schabas said. “This year, amendments to the Statute that complete the initial document should become fully operational.  Although the first trials have only concerned situations in Africa, the Prosecutor is now actively considering undertaking proceedings against several of the most powerful States in the world respecting the conduct of their armed forces, including three permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. Several challenges, both legal and political, confront the institution as it finds its place within the global system.”

William A. Schabas is professor of international law at Middlesex University London, professor of international criminal law and human rights at Leiden University and emeritus professor of human rights law at the National University of Ireland Galway.

He is the author of many books and articles on the abolition of capital punishment, genocide, human rights and the international criminal tribunals.

McKenna Centre Distinguished Speaker Series: Public Lecture – “Educating for Democracy” by Hon. Margaret McCain

DATE:   14/3/17
TIME:   7:00 PM
LOCATION:   Kinsella Auditorium, McCain Hall

The Hon. Margaret McCain will speak on the vital role of education and public policy in supporting democratic institutions during periods of change and dislocation in a public lecture at St. Thomas University.

Her talk, “Educating for Democracy,” is part of the McKenna Centre for Communications and Public Policy Distinguished Speaker Series. It will be held on Tuesday, March 14 at 7 pm in the Kinsella Auditorium in McCain Hall.

“Societies require caring and responsible citizens genuinely concerned with and capable of contributing to democracy, peace and sustainability. Educating for these goals should begin very early in life because it is during this period that children develop their basic values, attitudes, skills, behaviours and habits,” said McCain. 

“We live in a period of rapid technological change resulting in economic dislocation which has consequences for how people view democracy and its institutions. Public policy must respond by cushioning the impact and supporting citizens to adjust. At the same time, it must prepare the next generation to lead and flourish in the new environment.”

Past speakers in the McKenna Centre Speaker Series have been: Brian Feltmate, ecologist and climate change adaption expert; Elizabeth May, leader of the federal Green Party; former senator Michael Kirby; and former Prime Minister Paul Martin.

McCain has long been a champion of Canada’s youngest citizens and active with public policy issues. Together with her husband, Wallace and her four children, she founded the Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation to promote the best possible early childhood for all of Canada’s children. Her knowledge and understanding about the impact of early experiences on lifelong learning, behaviour and health are evident in the three Early Years Studies (1999, 2007 and 2011) which recommended early child development and parenting centres linked to the school system and sensitive to local communities.

McCain’s concern about family violence, long before it was recognized in mainstream thinking, was evident in her term as the 27th Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick from 1994 to 1997. She was a founding member of the Muriel McQueen Fergusson Foundation whose mission is to eliminate family violence through public education and research.
