One Senior Presentation Down and One Still to Go!

By Amanda Holmes

Last night the SXU Philosophy Department hosted its first Senior Colloquium. The event was very well attended and everyone seemed to have a nice time. In my last post I talked about the process leading up to last night’s presentation. It was a year long process but last night all the work we have done in the past year culminated with the colloquium.

If you didn’t come, here is what you missed:

Olivia Rossi’s paper was titled “When the Laws Fall Silent or What’s Cook’n in Melos”
With a commentary by Amanda Holmes

Marcella Russo
“Come On, Feel the Noise: Recognizing the Public Nature of Sentiment”
With a commentary by Jake Shorette

Jake Shorette
“Spinoza and the Responsibilities of the Free Man!”
With a commentary by Olivia Rossi

Amanda Holmes
“The Party’s on the Left Side: A Critical Analysis of (Some) Marxist Readings of the TTP”
With a commentary by Marcella Russo

Now that the philosophy department’s colloquium is over I can get ready for my next big presentation this Saturday at the Eighth Annual SXU Senior Honors Conference. The conference will take place on Saturday, April 24 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is open to the public. There will be a number of diverse presentations within the fields of biology, communication, communication sciences and disorders, education, English, music, nursing, philosophy political science and religious studies.
