Summer Lecture Series Explores World Religions
Brian Smith, professor and Charles and Joan van Zoeren Chair in Religion, Ethics, and Values, hosted a four-week online lecture series in comparative world religions for interested alumni this June. Participants ranged from alumni who graduated in 1958 to 2003.
Smith’s video lecture series was complemented with short readings, additional videos and weekly brief essays, allowing the students to self-pace in the different mediums. Throughout the lecture series, alumni engaged in discussions online, and Smith provided ongoing feedback.
The lectures concluded at Alumni Weekend with a formal in-person lecture and reflection. These interactions highlight how a liberal arts education is more than four years’ time.
