"Living and Laughing by the Chopsticks-Fork Principle," Cathy Bao Bean Time: 7:00p - 9:00p Location: O'Hara Dining Room Details:
Rooted in the telling of one family's life, The Chopsticks-Fork Principle: A Memoir and Manual by Cathy Bao Bean is a story for all families. In this humorous and poignant memoir, the author, an immigrant from China, recounts how she figured out how to be herself, as well as raise a son whose artist father did things like paint the lawn. As Cathy Bao Bean attempts to satisfy disparate cultural norms, she provides us with a unique window into the experience of a bicultural family.
Social Science Inequality Panel Discussion Time: 7:00p - 8:30p Location: Knott Auditorium Details:
Economics, Education, Political Science, and Sociology will be represented at a panel discussion on April 4th, from 7-8:30 pm in Knott Auditorium. Social scientists are interested in social stratification and inequality. To better understand the causes and consequences of inequality—ranging from economic inequality to educational inequality—social science researchers carefully examine the historical, economic, cultural, and social factors that give rise to inequality. The central questions addressed in this multidisciplinary panel are these: Why is there social inequality? What are its consequences? What can be done to reduce it? The distinguished panel members will examine and discuss social inequality from a variety of perspectives.
This event is co-sponsored by the School of Education and Human Services, the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business, and the College of Liberal Arts.
