2015-16 Brown Bag Lunches


Ethics Table Brown Bag Lunches, 2015-2016

The Ethics Table Brown Bag Lunches began in Spring semester 2013 and have continued uninterrupted since. Many topics have been covered in them, including the 2014-2015 series that began with police violence in Ferguson and ended with Michael Rakowitz’s utopian project for the right to safety in Cleveland following the Tamir Rice shooting. The 2015-2016 topics, happily, were saved:
