Phi Beta Kappa Symposium on the Liberal Arts: Peter Hoesing '03, "Multiculturalism and its Malcontents"

  • Date: Saturday, October 27, 2018
  • Time: 9:30 am
  • Location: Center for Faith and Life, Recital Hall

Whereas the waning years of the twentieth century embraced globalization in virtually every market from raw materials to migrant labor to music, the first two decades of the twenty-first century have witnessed a dark turn from multiculturalist paradigms toward discourses of otherness and fear. Placing this shift against the backdrop of a longer historical frame, ethnomusicologist Pete Hoesing '03 will reflect on the important work of continuing to seek mutual understanding.
