The theme for this year is Modern-day Meditations, inspired by the work of Marcus Aurelius.

Students, faculty and staff are all invited to participate in the event in a number of ways: by enrolling in the online course, Modern Stoicism, by following the event on Twitter (#StoicWeek), or by subscribing to the event’s dedicated blog.

Members of the Bates community can also participate on campus by joining a panel discussion on Stoicism, scheduled for Wednesday, November 4, 12:00  – 1:00 in Pettengill G65.  Lisa Maurizio (Classics and Medieval Studies), Susan Stark (Philosophy), and Kate White (Psychology) will lead an informal discussion of Stoicism across intellectual disciplines.  A light lunch will be provided to those who register in advance: registration form (https://goo.gl/lUu84C)
