  • 09/23/2021 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM 100 Major Williams Hall Queer Life (& Death) during Pandemic: A queer examining the tale of Egbert and Ethelhun in Bede's Historia ecclesiastica In this talk, Jo will discuss the tale of Egbert and Ethelhun in Bede's Historia ecclesiastica gentis Anglorum. Bede's 8th century text provides a rare glimpse into life during the arrival, spread, and subsequent devastation of the Justinianic Pandemic (=Y. pestis, i.e. plague) in Britain and Ireland. Diverging from other contemporary sources, Bede describes the devastation in more than purely mechanical terms, instead relating the emotional impact caused by mass death. In particular, he tells the story of two clerics, Egbert and Ethelhun, the last surviving members of their monastery. In this paper, Jo will argue for a queer reading of Egbert and Ethelhun's story, contextualizing their narrative within the rapidly developing historiography on queer lives in the Middle Ages.(Refreshments provided)
  • 09/23/2021 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Kellogg Center (820 University City Blvd) PPE Reading Group: Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism This semester, the PPE Reading Group will discuss Ann Case and Angus Deaton's award-winning book, Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism (2020). The book paints a troubling portrait of the American dream in decline, with dramatically increasing deaths from suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism that especially affect the white working class. Case and Deaton tie this crisis to the weakening position of labor, the growing power of corporations, and, above all, to a rapacious health-care sector. Capitalism, which over two centuries lifted countless people out of poverty, is now destroying the lives of blue-collar America. The book charts a way forward, providing solutions that can rein in capitalism's excesses and make it work for everyone. The reading group is (provisionally) scheduled every other Thursday from 4-5:30pm in the conference room of the Kellogg Center. Participation is open to students (whether you are already a PPE student or interested in becoming one) and select faculty. Please sign up with Melinda Miller (millermc@vt.edu) to receive your book in time to read. Enjoy free pizza and soft drinks with our discussions!

  • 09/30/2021 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM Virtual Defining Food Systems for Sustainable Development: Global to Local Partnerships Defining Food Systems in Rural Communities The UN Secretary-General has called for a Food Systems Summit to unleash the power of food and deliver progress on all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

  • 10/21/2021 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Kellogg Center (820 University City Blvd) PPE Reading Group: Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism This semester, the PPE Reading Group will discuss Ann Case and Angus Deaton's award-winning book, Deaths of Despair and the Future of Capitalism (2020). The book paints a troubling portrait of the American dream in decline, with dramatically increasing deaths from suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism that especially affect the white working class. Case and Deaton tie this crisis to the weakening position of labor, the growing power of corporations, and, above all, to a rapacious health-care sector. Capitalism, which over two centuries lifted countless people out of poverty, is now destroying the lives of blue-collar America. The book charts a way forward, providing solutions that can rein in capitalism's excesses and make it work for everyone. The reading group is (provisionally) scheduled every other Thursday from 4-5:30pm in the conference room of the Kellogg Center. Participation is open to students (whether you are already a PPE student or interested in becoming one) and select faculty. Please sign up with Melinda Miller (millermc@vt.edu) to receive your book in time to read. Enjoy free pizza and soft drinks with our discussions!
