NIC's Phi Theta Kappa chapter to present seminar on power
The North Idaho College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, will present a two-part seminar focused on gender and power this month.
The seminar is part of the chapter’s exploration of this year’s Phi Theta Kappa honors study topic “Gold, Gods and Glory: The Global Dynamics of Power.” The topic is utilized as the focus of various Phi Theta Kappa honors programs.
The first part of the seminar will be the showing of the Charlize Theron film “North Country” at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12 in Room 102 of the Meyer Health and Sciences Building on NIC’s main campus. The film is based on a true story about a woman who breaks the gender barriers in the iron mines of Minnesota.
The second part of the seminar will be presented via a videotaped lecture by Pepper Schwartz, a sociology professor at the University of Washington in Seattle and relationship and family health expert. She will present on “Gender and Power in Relationships” at 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26 in Room 102 of the Meyer Health and Sciences Building. The seminar will focus on the sources of power in relationships and the role that gender plays in the struggle for power.
NIC History Instructor Sharla Chittick, NIC Library Circulation Supervisor Debra Vigil and Philosophy Instructor Pat Lippert will act as a response panel.
Both events are free and open to the public and will include refreshments.
