SONS OF NORWAY TROLL LOUNGE
A public conversation about TRUTH with Davis Cope, associate professor, mathematics, NDSU, and organizer, Science, Religion, and Lunch Seminar, and Roselima D’Costã, retired high school principal in Jammu, J & K State, Delhi-6, and Orlim, Goa, and Presentation Sister for 51 years. Moderated by Veronica Michael.
Thanks to Folkways and a great roster of community hosts for sponsoring our May conversation!
How do we recognize, relay, revise and react to the truth? How do we moderate what we disclose about our identities, our beliefs, our experiences or our opinions to maintain harmony at home or work or to protect ourselves or our status in public? Who gets to be honest? Does truth-telling require privilege and power? (How) does civil society depend on our collective instinct to calibrate honesty to an accepted standard of politeness? What’s the cost of candor? How much comfort would we be willing to exchange for the sake of seeking and speaking truth? How do we identify and interact with relative v. universal truth?
Reserve your seat at the table via Eventbrite.
RSVP on Facebook.
A fast-paced format eliciting the insight, experience and curiosity of everyone in the room and blurring the roles of speaker / audience –
