MCSI is proud to announce our Spring 2020 Theme: Human Suffering and the Divine Hiddenness.

For centuries, philosophers and theologians have been debating the question of why God, who is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-good, is hidden, absent or silent in the face of human suffering. In our lecture series, we have invited prominent scholars from a range of disciplines and from different parts of the world to address and help us understand an array of topics pertaining to the problem of Divine Hiddenness.

MCSI Lecture: “Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy” - Pitzer College 09/05/2018

In Antisocial Media, Siva Vaidhyanathan explains how Facebook devolved from an innocent social site hacked together by Harvard students into a force that, while it may make personal life just a little more pleasurable, makes democracy a lot more challenging. It’s an account of the hubris of good intentions, a missionary spirit, and an ideology that sees computer code as the universal solvent for all human problems. And it’s an indictment of how “social media” has fostered the deterioration of democratic culture around the world, from facilitating Russian meddling in support of Trump’s election to the exploitation of the platform by murderous authoritarians in Burma and the Philippines.

08/23/2017

The Munroe Center for Social Inquiry’s 2017-2018 theme is “CONSPIRACY THEORY – CONSPIRACY FACT: Understanding a perplexing social phenomenon.”

If recent news headlines are any indication, CONSPIRACY THEORY – CONSPIRACY FACT represent a prevalent theme in contemporary public discourse, be it theories that the attacks on 9/11/2001 were an “inside job,” that Volkswagen engineers conspired to disguise their vehicles’ emissions profiles, or that U.S. elections have been “rigged” or otherwise improperly influenced by foreign or domestic actors.

In Fall 2017, Pitzer hosts a distinguished series of investigators from fields as various as Philosophy, History, Political Science, Anthropology, Journalism & Media Studies will share what they have learned about conspiracies and conspiracy theories.
