Think Olio Holiday Party

*Join us for an Olio that will feature three professors giving interdisciplinary talks on totally unrelated topics.*

Our end of year party celebrating all of the new teachers at Think Olio with Mini-Olios, free Lagunitas, and raffle prizes. This will be a 2-hour celebration of all of the great teachers who joined us in 2017. 

We're also open to hear nominations for new professors to join the Think Olio community - new voices can speak to topics we haven't touched on, ideas that deserve more attention, and anything you think we're missing at Think Olio.

Mini-Olios:
1. A close listening to Glassworks by Philip Glass with Whitney George
2. A look into Meme Culture with Makeba Lavan
3. Philosophizing on Sexuality with Jeanne Proust

*Complimentary beverages*
