Trine University's Fall 2017 Humanities Symposia will begin Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Presented by the university's Department of Humanities and Communication (HAC), the symposia are held in Wells Theater inside Taylor Hall. Each symposium begins at 3:30 p.m.

The Sept. 12 symposium is titled "What We Did Over Summer Vacation" and includes a panel of HAC students facilitated by Justin Young, chair of the department. Students Clare Danner, Fernando Bauzo and Emma Lucas will share about their summer experiences from Indiana to Rome and how the humanities helped them make the most of their opportunities.

On Sept. 19, Justin Bock, assistant professor in the Franks School of Education, will present "Investment in Time, Money and Character: The Modern Face of Youth Sports." This symposium will examine the changes in youth sports, the prevalent coaching attitudes and the effects on family.

Patrick Ridout, information services librarian, will speak on diversity in comic books during "To Reflect the Current World: Marvel and DC's Push for Diversity" on Sept. 26. The event will discuss how efforts to create more diversity in comic book characters have succeeded and stumbled in the past several years.

On Oct. 3, Sarah Zimmer, art lecturer, will speak on "Part Gothic Revival, 100% American." Inspired by Grant Wood's famous painting "American Gothic," Zimmer enters a gothic vernacular home in a small Midwestern town and literally digs up objects and artifacts of its previous inhabitants in an attempt to create a new type of portrait.
The final two symposia, scheduled for Oct. 17 and Nov. 14, tie into the book "Hidden Figures," which is being read in Composition I classes for this year's Freshman Reading Engagement Experience. " 'Real Genius' Women," presented on Oct. 17 by Cassandra Bausman, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Humanities and Communication, will consider the 1985 film "Real Genius" through a feminist lens. "Hidden Figures and Trine," presented by Alison Witte, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Humanities and Communication, will discuss women who are alumni from Trine working in the STEM field.

The Humanities Symposia is free and open to the public. Trine students get CHAT credit for attending. Talks usually last 30 minutes and are followed by a time for questions.
