  • Downtown Lecture Series: Edible Roman Empire

    What lessons can we learn about food and foodways from the Roman Empire? A surprising amount. The Roman Empire encompassed some 50-60 million people, transforming the lives of its conquered populations. Wheat, olive oil, wine, and fish paste were mass-produced and transported thousands of miles, undercutting local food traditions. Agribusiness and monoculture supplanted independent farmers. Crops were harvested unsustainably. But at the same time many people benefited from greater food security than ever before. Who were the winners and losers in this, the first globalized food system?

Even our everyday meals – how we prepare, serve and consume them – tell a story of who we are.

  • Downtown Immortality Lecture Series: "THE ELUSIVE SELF IN LIFE AND DEATH"

    Professor Shaun Nichols and his research team spent months exploring attitudes towards death among Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists in India. His exploration was prompted by the philosophical argument that we should not fear the idea of death because there is no enduring self that remains exactly the same even during biological life. At most we (our selves) are a collection of values, convictions, and memories undergoing constant change. From this perspective, the future “you" who dies will not be the same person as “you" today. Because Tibetan Buddhists embrace the concept that there is no enduring self throughout biological life, they should be less afraid of death at the end of biological life. But are they? His findings may surprise you.
