Creighton Honors Program hosts next installation of CONSIDER! series, March 30

The Creighton University Honors Program is hosting its annual CONSIDER! Consideration Public Conversation Initiative series Saturday, March 30, at 2 p.m. at the Mainelli Center at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church, 11802 Pacific St., in Omaha.

CONSIDER! is a series of informed presentations designed to spark conversations in a variety of disciplines. The Consideration Public Conversation Initiative trains undergraduates and alumni of the Honors Program to offer brief, sharp, and substantive public lectures, blogs, or podcasts on a host of topics. Past events have delved into student and alumni insights on cancer research, bioterrorism, legal punishment, the nature of love, and the history of eugenics. These talks introduce the public to new topics, guiding attendees through the methods of various disciplines, and providing helpful resources with which to conceptualize problems of our world.

This year’s CONSIDER! event features five presenters and four talks from two Creighton alumni and three current Creighton Honors Program students.

The afternoon kicks off with Erin Bahl, BA’12, PhD, an assistant professor of applied and professional writing at Kennesaw State University, delivering a talk titled “The Dearest Freshness Deep Down Things: How Material Objects Shape Digital Scholarship.”

Next up will be Jordan Freitas, BS’13, a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Berkeley, who will speak on “They Know. They Infer. Who Are They?: Reconsidering Data Privacy.”

Taylor Burke and Shannon Myers, both sophomores in the College of Arts and Sciences and Honors Program students, will deliver a talk called “Who Owns Your DNA?” and, rounding out the day will be Mary Kate Wolken, an Honors Program senior in the College of Arts and Sciences, presenting “Maternal Mortality: Mothers, Medicine, and the Man-Midwife.” This event is free and open to the public.
