The Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery presents Ola Belle Reed: I've Endured, an exhibition that explores the life and work of nationally recognized bluegrass musician Ola Belle Reed, contextualizing her achievements within a history of migration from rural Appalachia north in the twentieth century. With a voice born in the mountains and shaped by the hard times she lived and saw, Reed (1916–2002) established herself as a significant and influential banjo picker, singer, and songwriter of old-time mountain music.
The Department of Philosophy presents the annual Evelyn Barker Memorial Lecture, featuring Miranda Fricker, who will speak on What's the Point of Blaming and Forgiving? This event is part of the spring 2023 Humanities Forum. Blaming someone for a wrong done further disrupts your relationship with them; forgiving them restores that relationship, at least in some measure. In this talk, Miranda Fricker will explore these apparently opposed moral-relational energies, examining their various moral-social values.
