SAU to debut Liberal Arts & Sciences Cafe Wednesday
Laurinburg, NC - St. Andrews University will hold the first in a series of Liberal Arts and Sciences Cafes Wednesday evening beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Ronald H. Bayes Writers’ Forum Lounge in Orange Hall.
This free event, which the public is invited to attend, will feature the discussion “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and if so, do we follow them on Facebook?”
Distinguished Professor of Politics Neal Bushoven and Visiting Professor of Computer Science Jim Putnam will moderate.
“This is the first in a series of interdisciplinary discussions to be held at St. Andrews,” said coordinator John Knesel, associate professor of biology and chair of the natural and life sciences department. “We are basing the format on the Science Cafes, which means audience participation, appetizers and beverages.”
Science Cafes were created as a grassroots movement to bring science discussions to the public in casual settings to those who might not participate in formal science presentation.
“The formal part of the program will last about one hour with the opportunity for individual discussions to continue afterward,” said Knesel.
