Many of the Anthropocene&rsquo;s strongest boosters argue that we must now acknowledge and embrace the control we now exert over our home planet. &nbsp;On this view, adapting to climate change is not just a matter of building sea walls or developing drought-resistant crops. It is, instead, a matter of repositioning ourselves in relation to nature, letting go of the nostalgic idea that nature knows best, or that the past can serve as an ethical guide to the future. &nbsp;Against this view, I argue for the moral relevance of the past and its legacy, or &ldquo;the world as we find it.&rdquo; &nbsp;I suggest that by understanding why we value the world as we find it, including the social world, we can better understand the value of key aspects of the natural world. This, in turn, can help us identify more clearly how our responses to a changing climate can take account of values grounded in the present and past, even as we face rapid future change.</em></p> <p>Professor Hourdequin is a graduate of Princeton University, with masters degrees in biology and philosophy from the University of Montana, and a doctorate in philosophy from Duke University. She has published many articles and book chapters on topics such as "Empathy, Shared Intentionality, and Motivation by Moral Reasons," "Evolutionary Approaches to Ethics,&rdquo; and "Engagement, Withdrawal, and Social Reform: Confucian and Contemporary Perspectives.&rdquo; Her current projects include work on the relationship between collective action problems such as climate change and individual moral obligation, moral learning and moral motivation, the roles of care and empathy as moral guides in contemporary and classical ethical theories, and the ethics of ecological restoration.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Spanish Short Film Festival Mon, 18 Mar 2013 15:02:36 MDT <p><em>Tuesday, April 2, 2013 5:00 PM</em></p><p>We will watch short films and practice Spanish speaking skills after watching each of them.</p> Kappa Sigma Chili Cook-Off Tue, 10 Feb 2015 07:40:10 MST <p><em>Tuesday, April 2, 2013 6:00 PM</em></p><p> Sign up for the Chili Cook-Off to support the CC Soup Kitchen and sample the best chili CC has to offer (or cook your own and compete for $100 to Jack Quinn's and serious bragging rights)!</p> <p class="MsoNormal" ><strong >Eat or Compete</strong></p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst" >&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Make a team of 2-3 people and compete for a $100 Gift Certificate to Jack Quinn&rsquo;s</p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle" >(Judged by panel of your very own CC Professors)</p> <p class="MsoNormal" >OR&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpFirst" >&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Eat some delicious home-cooked chili</p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle" >(Tickets are only $5 at the Worner desk, and every cent goes to the CC Soup Kitchen)</p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle" >&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoListParagraphCxSpMiddle" ><em>To sign your team up, contact Alex Harleen: <a href=""></a>.</em></p> Fashion Show Tue, 14 Oct 2014 09:30:18 MDT <p><em>Tuesday, April 2, 2013 7:30 PM</em></p> Class presentation by Intersection Trio Mon, 18 Mar 2013 14:25:12 MDT <p><em>Wednesday, April 3, 2013 11:30 AM</em></p><p>Intersection Trio (Laura Frautschi, <em>violin</em>; Kristina Reiko Cooper, <em>cello; and </em>John Novacek, <em>piano)</em> will perform and discuss Gershwin&rsquo;s "Rhapsody in Blue" and Tomojiro Ikenouchi's&nbsp;"<em>Ballade sur en air Japonais Ancien."</em>&nbsp;Ikenouchi was a tremendously important music educator and composer in Japan, who was a trailblazer in bringing the French influence back to Japan.</p> "Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggle in Northern New Mexico" Mon, 18 Mar 2013 15:59:09 MDT <p><em>Wednesday, April 3, 2013 12:00 PM</em></p><p>David Correia will speak about his latest book, "Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggle in Northern New Mexico." Through a compelling story about the conflict over a notorious Mexican-period land grant in northern New Mexico, Correia examines how law and property are constituted through violence and social struggle. Spain and Mexico populated what is today New Mexico and southern Colorado through large common property land grants to sheepherders and agriculturalists. After the U.S.-Mexican War the area saw rampant land speculation and dubious property adjudication. Nearly all of the huge land grants were rejected by U.S. courts or acquired by land speculators. The Tierra Amarilla land grant, in northern New Mexico, is one of the most notorious. In his recent book<em>,</em>&nbsp;"Properties of Violence," Correia tells a largely unknown history of property conflict in Tierra Amarilla characterized by nearly constant violence &mdash; night riding and fence cutting, pitched gun battles, and tanks rumbling along the rutted dirt roads of northern New Mexico. This legal geography includes a remarkable cast of characters: millionaire sheep barons, Spanish anarchists, hooded Klansmen, Puerto Rican terrorists, and undercover FBI agents. By placing property and law at the center of this study, "Properties of Violence" provocatively suggests that violence is not the opposite of property but rather is essential to its operation.</p> <p>Cost to attend is $17 (includes buffet lunch).
