Dolores Huerta was one of the main organizers behind the United Farm Workers movement alongside Cesar Chavez, but her name is much less recognized and her legacy is often diminished. To lift her name and her legacy up, CC’s SOMOS and the Chaplains’ Office are collaborating to screen the film Dolores on Monday, April 1, at 5:30pm in the Cornerstone Screening Room. There will be a free Indian food dinner served at 5:30 and the film will start at 6pm. After the film, there will be a panel discussion about the role of family and community in activist movements. Panelists include Prof. Christina Leza, Claudia De La Cruz from the local NAACP, and Mina, who is a local immigrant rights activist. All are welcome to join and this event will be bilingual in Spanish and English.

This course explores the development of French philosophy from the interwar period to the present. Using the city of Paris as its context, the course examines how dramatic social and political challenges influenced the paths of French philosophical reflection, moving thinkers to question the foundations of knowledge, morals, and politics, leading ultimately to what might be called a “decentered” cosmopolitanism.

Live in one of the best, liveliest neighborhoods of Paris, and study philosophy where it happened and is happening! With field trips to relevant sites in Paris and class visits by contemporary French philosophers.

The program fee will be $3850. Airfare and most meals not included.
