The University of Kentucky College of Arts and Science's Committee on Social Theory will host its 2015 lecture series, “Transnational Lives,” throughout the spring semester.
Despite differences in subject matter and methods, students in disciplines like Biology and English have some common ground: they are part of the College of Arts and Sciences. Recently, this common ground connected two UK alumni who graduated over thirty years apart.
Every spring the Committee on Social Theory offers the team-taught seminar—always with four professors. Previous course themes/names for the seminar have included “Law, Sex, and Family” “Autobiography,” and “Security.” But previous seminars may not have spoken so directly to the professors’ personal backgrounds as “Transnational Lives” does with this team of four.
Several University of Kentucky programs, including the International Studies Program and the Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences and University Press of Kentucky, have organized two events just for those of us trying to keep up with global politics.
Professor Margaret Archer will give a free lecture Friday, Dec. 12, at 4 p.m.
