Panel discussion on modern anti-Semitism
A panel discussion will be held today to discuss the need for more awareness about modern anti-Semitism.
The panel of scholars will examine the origins and early evolution of European anti-Semitism in an effort to determine the relationship between medieval and modern anti-Semitism.
The discussion starts tonight at 7 in the Center for English as a Second Language, Room 102.
Debate about student apathy today
Students can argue about political apathy among young people during an open debate near the Alumni Plaza today from noon to 2 p.m.
“Generation: Apathetic,” which will be the Debate Club’s last forum of the semester, will challenge the reason behind this generation’s lack of concern for local, national and international issues, said Tawfik Maudah, the club’s president and philosophy senior.
Student government leaders and professors have been invited to lead the discussion, but Maudah said he expects student audience members to carry 70 percent to 80 percent of the conversation.
