:: Second Weaving Workshop

Using a door frame discarded during the renovations of North Hall, artist Susan Byrnes created a bed where she wove two “blankets” out of discarded Xeroxes, VHS tape, and audio tape from classes taught at Antioch previously.

On February 1, the second Weaving Workshop will be held in the Herndon Gallery from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Antioch students will come together to make a third, using anything that symbolizes Antioch to us: essays submitted during the admissions process, old essays, posters, leaves, and any other material found on campus capable of being shredded. Hot cider and cookies will be provided.

:: Workshop in Self and World in Indian Philosophy at Antioch College

Ramesh Patel, professor of philosophy and religion emeritus, will give a two-day workshop on Indian Philosophy on Saturday, February 2, and Saturday, February 9. The workshop will meet from 10:00 a.m. to noon and from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on both Saturdays, and it will be held at Antioch College in McGregor Hall, room 118.

This workshop will treat Indian philosophy in a comprehensive yet concentrated way, dealing with Hinduism, which is the major component of Indian philosophy, along with Buddhism and Jainism. The focus will be on philosophy of self and world in Indian thought, particularly in Vedic philosophy, together with what form Hinduism should take in this day and age. A major concern will be enlightenment experience and ways of understanding this key aspect of spirituality in Indian thought. Everyone is welcome. If you would like more information or materials to read in advance, please contact lcassity@antiochcollege.org.
