Undergraduate Humanities Forum 2007-2008: Origins

 

The Penn Humanities Forum thanks everyone—our special guests, faculty, students, and wonderful members of the community—for your ideas, enthusiasm and support as we journeyed back to various beginnings in this year on Origins.

Next year, in 2008–2009, we celebrate our Tenth Anniversary! And what better topic to explore than CHANGE, whose every notion—growth, variation, evolution, revolution, entropy, chaos, metamorphosis, and more—ushers in a fresh array of controversies. Come argue, deplore, and celebrate with us!
