:: Friday Forum on Gun Violence: “Guns don’t kill people”

This week’s Friday Forum on Gun Violence is titled, “Guns don’t kill people.” The forum will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Coretta Scott King Center.

In the wake of tragedies like Newtown and Aurora, there has been renewed conversation about the role of guns in American society. Some say that our constitutional rights allow for the ownership of the most powerful weapons for the sake of self-defense and for sport. Others argue that many of our weapons stand outside of the scope of the second amendment. Our panel will touch upon these varying points of view and what role, if any, guns should have in America’s future.

For more information, contact Derrick Weston at

:: Herndon Gallery announcements

There will be a roundtable discussion on the theme of Memes and Meaning at the Herndon Gallery on Thursday, February 7, at 7:00 p.m. Please come help us explore this idea of memes—how they function in our lives, how the work in the gallery might function as a meme. A number of the artists in the exhibition will be present to introduce the discussion, but it is an opportunity for all of us to consider this question. The exhibition closes on February 15, so be sure to see it!

The curator of Meme: Culture in Transmission, Susan Byrnes, will be on campus on Thursday, February 7, and will be weaving your stories into the third panel of her piece Mending is Better Than Ending. Come by the gallery between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. to meet her, and bring your admissions essays to shred and contribute to the weaving of your hopes, dreams and realities. Found materials like natural plant forms, grasses, material, are also invited—whatever you feel captures a part of your story.
