Stop by the Student Center Atrium on March 4th, 2014 from 12pm-1pm to hear Spoken Word Artist, Katie Wirsing perform!
Presenter: Alan León
Presented by Chris Kramer, RVC Assistant Professor of Philosophy.
An account of one form of oppression concentrating on the concealed mechanism in stereotypes. Damaging stereotypes perpetuate a specific kind of "civilized oppression" that is difficult to recognize due to the ubiquity and normalizing tendencies of these hidden devices embedded in our language and everyday practices. A non-violent "weapon" in the fight against them is humor. Professor Kramer will argue that humor can be used in revealing hidden errors in our heuristic thinking or stereotypes. Developing a humorous attitude in ourselves fosters epistemic openness, in addition to standing as a form of protest that is quickly transmitted and potentially far-reaching.
