Concordia University's 2013-14 convocation series continues with Concordia's Book of the Year: Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo. Presentation by CSP professor Paul Hillmer and others.
Whether you’ve read it or not, please participate in this discussion of Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo in which panelists and audience alike will discuss the book from a variety of academic and other perspectives. What can a study of a Mumbai slum tell us about ourselves, about humanity, about changes wrought by a global economy? Given Concordia’s theme for the year, how do we “walk in love” with people half a world away whose lives are so different from—and yet surprisingly similar to—our own? Join us for a thought-provoking discussion.
The Concordia community is invited to this free event.
