Why Jeannie Drank, A Colloquium

The Faculty of Arts and Philosophy at the University of Muskegon announces its national conference on their common research theme: “Why Jeannie Drank.” At the core of the theme is the signal question of alternative points of view. The aim of this inter-, multi-, trans-disciplinary conference is to open discussion on how personal vs. community responsibility can be apportioned and other jargon. The conference consists of a series of colloquia on the following topics, led by our distinguished visiting experts:

1. Donna Diehl, former Full Professor at Bachelder University, now teaching at Northern Parkway State. Her paper is entitled: “Dangers of the ‘Sibling Society’: Failure to Take Responsibility and Its Repercussions.” Prof. Diehl will require a ride to and from the colloquium as well as a colleague to push her wheelchair, although she is not differently abled (it’s a metaphor). After her presentation, cake will be served to everyone who claps. Could someone please bring a sharps disposal box?…
