UPDATE: The CSUB Ethics Bowl team was featured in the Inside CDCR newsletter.
The CSUB Ethics Bowl team has been busy this fall!
In November, they debated a group of inmates at the California Correctional Institution in Tehachapi, and on December 2nd, they participated in the California Regional Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl Competition at San Diego State University. They debated issues such as euthanasia, fake news, and the Electoral College. Members of the team include Michael Akroush, William Edwards, Jennifer Fair, Hannah Farnum, Anna Hart, Dubrea Sanders, and James White. The team is coached by Dr. Nate Olson, and Dr. Michael Burroughs and Dr. Debra Jackson served as judges at the Tehachapi debate. The debates were the culmination of the team members’ semester-long work in Philosophy 3610: Ethics Bowl (which is offered each fall).
Support for the Ethics Bowl team was provided by the School of Arts and Humanities, a Teaching Innovation Grant from the Faculty Teaching and Learning Center, and the Kegley Institute of Ethics.
8ft x 5ft Assorted Wood
Studio Art majors, Valerie Pena, Dale Wolfe, and Gelacia Torivio, created a public sculpture in Advanced 3-Dimensional Topics class, to be placed outside of the new Arts and Humanities building.
They took on this challenge to demonstrate learning about site-specific artwork in Professor Joyce Kohl’s ART 4300 course. They felt that a site-specific sculpture would bring a focal point to the
brand-new building, while also keeping a close tie with the neighboring Visual Arts building.
The art piece consists of various types of wood, which give the sculpture its unique appearance. The students re-purposed each piece of wood, stained it, and created countless patterns so the public sculpture had an abstract form. This technique allows the artwork to blend in with its natural surroundings because it is placed near wood-chips and trees located outside the Arts and Humanities structure.
Dr. Jackie Kegley, Professor of Philosophy gave a keynote address, "Reconciling Individual/Group Rights and Community Rights" during a conference on Canadian Philosophy at the University of New Brunswick, Canada on November 26th.
