Centralia College

Centralia College is offering free online lectures, open to the public, starting on Oct. 14. 

The series of lectures has been made possible through a partnership between the Centralia College Foundation, Centralia College East and Humanities Washington.

The lectures are open to anyone who registers at foundation.centralia.edu/. Those who register will be sent a Zoom link prior to the start of the lecture. 

The first lecture, “The Ethics of Climate Change with Brian G. Henning” will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 14.

The lecture is described by the college as an examination of “how global warming itself is a symptom of a larger issue of how we conceive of ourselves and our relationship to the natural world.”

At 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 28 David E. Smith will deliver a lecture on “Civil Conversations in an Angry Age.” The synopsis of this lecture provided by the college is as follows: “By digging into the root causes of both civility and incivility, we’ll explore how we can have meaningful, respectful conversations on notoriously difficult topics.”

Lastly, Jeb Wyman will be delivering a lecture titled “Sometimes Heroes: The Changing Relationship with Veterans” at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 11. 

“Consider America’s relationship to wars and veterans over the last century, and what shapes our current national consciousness towards veterans,” states the synopsis of the lecture from Centralia College.
