On Friday, April 11 from 7-8 p.m. don’t miss a multimedia presentation of “Fast Forward Families: An Anthropology for the 21st Century” by Dr. Jan English Lueck, Associate Dean, Social Science,
College of Social Sciences, San Jose State University. Anthropologists have long been fascinated with the variety of configurations people call “a family.” In the late 20th century, scholars and journalists alike thought the family was on its way out. However, the family, while not looking like the stereotype of the past, remains at the heart of human social life. Dr. English-Lueck will talk about how families have changed and why they remain so important to society and so interesting to scholars.
The event is open to the public and free to attend. Parking permits will not be required for the event.
The Porterville College Cultural and Historical Awareness Program (CHAP) was organized in 2002 to enhance students' awareness of certain important aspects of our society to which they may previously have had little or no exposure. A theme is chosen by CHAP members each school year, and faculty members across the campus are encouraged to integrate elements of that theme into their coursework. Additionally, a variety of field trips, guest speakers, panel discussions and videos are presented throughout the year and are all open to the public.
