Soup with Substance: ‘Impact and meaning of the 20th anniversary of 9/11’ is Sept. 8 

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.”  

Sign up to receive the link to attend virtually. 

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.
