Freed-Hardeman University is hosting a Connections Series event Nov. 5-10. The FHU Connections Series is a weeklong program that is held each semester to highlight the interdisciplinary aspects of a certain topic.
This year’s theme is “Skin Deep: The American Pursuit of Beauty.” The event will look at the effects of America’s beauty-obsessed society. Topics will include spending habits, lifestyle choices and self-image.
The majority of the event will take place during university classes. In a series of “Collision Courses,” two faculty members from different disciplines will bring their classes together and focus on a topic. The goal is to demonstrate how two different areas of study can relate with each other.
An art show is planned for Nov.5 in the University Commons, 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. The works will focus on the American pursuit of beauty. Viewers will be asked to select a “people’s choice” winner. The American Chemical Society, FHU student chapter, will also provide a free chili supper.
A discussion hosted by three FHU alumni will be held Nov 6, at 7 p.m. in the Crews Theater. Current trends in fashion and how Americans view themselves will be considered.
The Homecoming play, “The Heiress,” will conclude the Connections Series. The play will run Nov. 8-10 at 7 p.m. and Nov 10 at 2:00 p.m. General admission is $10.
