The City Podcast: The History of Fashion

by Timothy Motte on September 29, 2014

Every day when you dress yourself, you are participating in art.

Why do you choose the clothes you choose? Why are you presented with certain clothing options and not others? Why has men’s fashion never recovered from the utility revolution of the late 19th century?

The history of fashion is a passion of Megan Mueller, director of the Academic Success Center at HBU. She has written an enlightening article in the latest issue of The City (which you can subscribe to here), and it has captured the imaginations of our podcasters.

Featuring: Megan Mueller, Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Cate MacDonald, Dr. Holly Ordway

He wants to help pro-lifers be more persuasive and less weird when they communicate with pro-choice people.

So do we. Let’s talk.

The City Podcast: Homophobia and Other Power Words

by Timothy Motte on August 25, 2014

Some words stop discussion dead.

Being committed to the Liberal Arts, this is not something we are in favor of. And yet, we still need to be able to sum up our positions in a word. We still need labels.

So today we have a political scientist, a philosopher, a Bible translator, and a Great Books educator discussing how to continue discussion in the face of words that demonize and marginalize.

Featuring: Dr. John Mark Reynolds, Cate MacDonald, Dr. Robert Stacey, Dr. David Capes
