Every-Other-Weekly Reader

As it did last year, the Moravian Reading Group will consider two topics: “The Moravians: Exploring a
Heritage” and “The Bodies of Men and Women.”

New this year: These programs will run on parallel tracks, with “The Moravians” on Wednesdays and “The
Bodies” on Tuesdays, both 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the HUB’s Snyder Room.

Heikki Lempa, assistant professor of history, will coordinate “The Moravians” and leads its first session
tomorrow (September 15) on the historical background of the sect and the writings of Jan Hus.

J.R. Thomas, instructor of economics and business, leads “The Bodies,” which offers contemporary thinking about the differentiation of bodies and the meaning of gender in fields such as biology, the environment, politics, and culture.

Its first session, September 21, will be led by Bill Falla, adjunct in philosophy. Called “Emotions of the Body,” it uses an essay by Martha Nussbaum called “Disgust” as its text. Reading packets are available from Mickey Ortiz Ortiz in 206 Comenius, Ext.1417.
