big Q!

Alright, I know we've been overdoing the event promoting the last few days, but some stuff is just that good. Tomorrow is the Big Question, an amazing project that is trying to encourage people to engage those scary deep meaningful conversations with people other than their roommates late at night. I love the thinking out loud, it's the best way to build community knowledge and insight. The challenge for Harvard students (for me, anyway) is learning to listen...

Go ask the Big Question tomorrow, share and listen! They're asking: Social Justice Tourism? What do service trips mean for us and for the places we go? The blurb is below the break... (more in expanded post)

* Have you spent time volunteering or teaching abroad?
* Have you gone on "alternative" spring break trips before?
* Ever feel like the "big questions" don't get asked at Harvard?
* Do you like FREE PIZZA? :)

This Friday, PBHA Presents this Semester's First...

((((((THE BIG QUESTION))))))

"Social Justice Tourism?"
What do service trips mean for us and for the places we go?

Special Guest:
Hamilton Simons-Jones,
Tulane University Director of Community Service

Hamilton helped organize the PBHA intersession trip to New Orleans.

This Friday, February 17th, 5PM-6PM
Phillips Brooks House Parlor Room


The Big Question is an experimental new PBHA project intended to provide
a weekly space for taking on the tough questions about society and our
role in it. The Big Question is not about jargon-filled policy debates or
easy answers from experts but instead strives to create an open, humble,
and respectful environment for constructive dialogue on essential issues.
