Dear Hopework friends, I want to share our plans for the summer with you. Most of you know that John, Nance, Peter, and Lynn have taught the residential course titled ³Lives Worth Living: Questions of Self, Vocation, and Community² (Philosophy 4326, also known as ³Philosophy Camp²) at Shalom Hill Farm near Windom, MN, for the past 5 summers and that we are currently recruiting students for this year¹s month-long offering. We have two exiting pieces of news to share with you. First, we now have a mini movie (1:44 min.) about the course made by GiGi Mullins based on the 2006 offering. She¹s posted the video on YouTube to share with the world! We love it and hope you will watch it. You can view it on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LryIo5GCoZs and on our site at http://www.philosophycamp.org/movie.html Next, some of you may not know that we are also recruiting students for a new course in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction titled ³Family Lives Worth Living² also to be held at Shalom Hill Farm for three weeks this July. It is not a course for families, but one that examines family life. Please share information below with friends and family who may be interested in attending as students (enrolled at the U of M, at another institution, or non-degree-seeking) or Visiting Fellows. More about the Fellow¹s professional development opportunity is at the end of the message below. Early application is strongly encouraged. Please contact John (walla003 [at] umn.edu) or Lynn (engl8813 [at] umn.edu with questions. Lynn The unexamined life is not worth living. -Socrates Family life is often taken for granted. After all, we were born into it without a say, and many circumstances that families face are beyond their control. Taking time to examine the aims that we hold for family life can help prepare us for the demands of family life and to be more intentional about the choices we make that affect family life?now and into the future. NEW COURSE: CI 5900-Family Lives Worth Living (Section 5, 3 credits) Off-campus, daily - 18 days - July 10 - 27, 2007 Family Lives Worth Living doesn't assert how families should live. The instructional team (family educators and philosophers) invite graduate students from all majors to a comfortable retreat setting in southwest Minnesota for an 18-day living-learning experience. We will examine the lives of families of the past, reflect on current family life issues, and ask how we can become more intentional about living questions of family life. * Open to undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students in any major * Multicultural experience intended * Small community of at most 20 students and 4 instructors in which friendships blossom * Living-learning community on the prairie of southwest Minnesota * Reflective and experiential learning focus * Helpful for students who want to reflect on their lives-past, present, and future Course site: http://www.hopework.org/family Course enrollment is limited Interested students should contact the instructor: Lynn Englund, engl8813 [at] umn.edu, 612-624-1055 Early application and individualized registration process required http://www.hopework.org/family/enrollment.html See also: Phil 4326?Lives Worth Living: Questions of Self, Vocation, and Community Off-campus, daily, May 21 to June 15, 2007 (6 cr.)
