Soup with Substance is starting back up in-person and virtually on Wednesday, Sept. 8, in AMU 163, with “Impact and meaning of the 20th anniversary of 9/11.”
The event will focus on how college students have been responding to and coping with the traumatic event through writing. Dr. Jenn Fishman, associate professor of English, designed a class that comparatively looks at college writing from 20 years ago and now, both times of crises. A panel from the Department of English will discuss the topic.
Inspired by the “roundtable discussions” of Peter Maurin and the Catholic Worker Movement, Soup with Substance is a noontime presentation on an issue related to social justice over a simple meal of soup and bread.
Each academic year, Campus Ministry hosts nearly forty Soup with Substance Programs. If your department or student organization has an idea for a Soup with Substance speaker or topic, please contact Michael Werning, Soup with Substance coordinator.
