– Clarke University of Sociology Rachel Daack, Ph.D. will give the Mackin-Mailander Faculty Lecture, “
Other People’s Children and the Common Good” on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in Jansen Music Hall on the Clarke campus.
Admission is free.
Through stories of her own and others’ experiences, Daack hopes to encourage new or renewed thoughts about others and the role each of us can play in creating good. Caring about and creating good for those who are not part of our close circle requires a special kind of energy. Daack will further discuss theories of thought on social engagement and understanding others.
“I will speak from my life experiences – on the Lincoln Elementary School Parent Teacher Association; the Safe Community Task Force, which explored race, class and crime in Dubuque; and the Dubuque NAACP Education Committee – to explore how local community engagement lines up with the theme of Common Good,” Daack said.
The Clarke University Mackin-Mailander Lecture Series was established in 1997 after Clarke received gifts from two alumnae, Mary Mackin ’34 and Verna Slattery-Mailander ’20, to establish an endowed lecture series. The annual series consists of a prominent outside speaker lecture, a faculty lecture and an alumni lecture.
