Colloquium: Doping and Performance in Focus

Colloquium: Doping and Performance in Focus

This Fall Term EKU Libraries will continue its effort to encourage casual dialogue across disciplinary boundaries among faculty and students by hosting hour-long, informally moderated colloquiums on selected Friday afternoons at 3:30 p.m. in the new Crabbe Library Research and Instruction Commons Conference Room, 204G.

Each colloquium will be devoted to text, video or audio material chosen by a faculty member who will also moderate the discussion. The material may be of any subject, scholarly or topical, peer-reviewed or popular, including original work, fiction and poetry. The only requirement is that the item(s) under discussion be accessible online (including, of course, any of EKU Libraries’ many subscription resources).

This Friday, Rob Sica will moderate discussion of philosopher Alvan Noë’s Doping and Performance In Focus:

What is it about drug use in sports that seems so repellent? Why the deep moral disapprobation? Why the outrage?


Refreshments kindly provided by EKU Student Government Association.

Faculty interested in participating as moderators are encouraged to contact Rob Sica.
