2018 Women’s History Month Keynote Address

Thursday, March 29, 3 pm, Olin Fishbowl. Prof. Barbara L. Whitten
What Unique Perspective Does Diversity bring to Physics?
In December of 2015, during discussion of Fisher v. University of Texas, an affirmative action case, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts asked, “”What unique perspective does a minority student bring to a physics class?” While it is impossible to know what Justice Roberts had in mind, I suggest that he believed that there is not a perspective that a minority student brings because “physics is physics, wherever you are.”. . .I am hoping to convince you that Justice Roberts is wrong; that minority students and women do bring a new and interesting perspective to physics class, and to careers in physics. So that the physics we create will be better-more reliable, more authentic, and more creative-when we have a more diverse physics community.

“Laudato Si’: How Pope Francis Enlists St. Francis of Assisi to Understand Climate Change”
A presentation by Professor J. Matthew Ashley (University of Notre Dame, Department of Theology)

The Screening Room, Cornerstone 131
Thursday, March 29, 2018
7:00 p.m.

Living in a distant age, Saint Francis of Assisi seems hardly an apt guide for making the difficult economic and political decisions required of us, or solving the complex scientific and technological problems that arise as we face global climate change and other environmental challenges. Yet, face them we must, for the sake of future generations. Why did Pope Francis begin and end his encyclical by pointing to the poor man of Assisi? How can the spiritual traditions he inspired help us be both more hard-headed and realistic, and also more hopeful and joyful, as we confront this growing crisis? Using the lens of Christian spirituality and of Francis of Assisi in particular, this lecture will explore Laudato Si’ and the approach it offers to our environmental challenges. Coffee will be available in the Great Hall outside the Screening Room.
