Mondays – Ethics in Modern Life
9/13, 9/20 & 9/27 11:00 AM/CH
Ethics in Modern Life
Hosted by: Sarah Rosenson
An ongoing series of discussions on “Ethics in Modern Life.” Should teens be able to get vaccinated if their parents object? Was it ethical for CNN news host Chris Cuomo to participate in strategy calls with aides to his brother, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York, after sexual harassment allegations emerged against the governor? Come join the conversation! And here’s a special challenge for you with lots of advance notice: in our classes on November 4 and 11 our subject will be “Jane Austen and Ethics: Pride, Prejudice, and Injustice.” We will talk about some of the different types of injustice, particularly those experienced by women, and how they affect people, both in the world of Jane Austen and today. You do NOT have to read “Pride and Prejudice” in order to enjoy these classes and participate in the discussions, but you might enjoy them even more if you are familiar with the book. Or you can watch the excellent 1995 miniseries adaptation starring Colin Firth, which is available on various streaming services.
