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.

Tuesday, April 2, 6-7:30 p.m.

Cornerstone Arts Center, Film Screening Room

Vanessa Dion Fletcher’s performance piece Menstrual Accessory takes

the form of a live “informercial” extolling the virtues of the product that

turns period stains into glamorous designs. While Menstrual Accessory deftly leverages humor and satire, Dion Fletcher notes that it also has a serious side. She writes, “this is really poignant for me in terms of talking about what is acceptable and not acceptable, and what aspects of a female body, or a body that menstruates, are acceptable or not.

Tuesday, April 2, 12:00-1:30 p.m.

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College

In this lunchtime talk, visiting artist and performer Vanessa Dion Fletcher will present an overview of her non-performance work, which incorporates materials such as porcupine quills, Wampum belts, and menstrual blood to reveal the complexities of what defines a body physically and culturally. She links these ideas to personal experiences with language, fluency, and understanding. The event is free and open to the public. Lunch is provided. Seating is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis.

Vanessa Dion Fletcher is a Canadian Potawatomi and Lenape two-spirit artist who draws upon her role as a woman in a colonial world to create performances that challenge preconceived notions of identity. Dion Fletcher identifies as two-spirit, a term established in the 1990s to represent Indigenous queer individuals with a First Nations spiritual affiliation. Her work incorporates traditional Indigenous materials, her own body, and the natural environment to raise issues that are pertinent to First Nations today.

Innovation at CC present Student Led Workshop for block 7: Acrylic Pouring and Fluid Art.

Come learn the art of Acrylic Pouring! We will be experimenting with various techniques to create colorful painting that are completely unique. Each pour will result in different patterns on the canvas – thus no two paintings are the same. The class will emphasize on color and texture but most importantly on imperfections and the process of creating.
