Lord of the Flies IRL with Dr. Shannon Valenzuela, Dr. Mark Petersen, and Dr. David Upham
Liberal Learning for Life @ UD
This conversation, which was recorded this past summer, is led by Dr. Shannon Valenzuela, Affiliate Assistant Professor of English and Content Director for Liberal Learning for Life. She is joined by Dr. Mark Petersen, Assistant Professor of History, and Dr. David Upham, Associate Professor of Politics. They discuss William Golding’s 1951 novel Lord of the Flies and a recently reported “lord of the flies in real life” story, in which a group of boys were shipwrecked on an island and- unlike in Golding’s novel – did not turn violent toward each other but survived and cooperated until their rescue. They also discuss our longstanding fascination with castaway stories and state of nature stories; the value of studying history and political philosophy; and the importance and power of stories in general. The article that they discuss can be read here: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/may/09/the-real-lord-of-the-flies-what-happened-when-six-boys-were-shipwrecked-for-15-months Learn more about Liberal Learning for Life at the University of Dallas here: https://udallas.edu/liberal-learning/

Mark Petersen’s Story of Philanthropy and Pilgrimage
Your Story with Melinda
https://youtu.be/nUFKJjSCmOM We often overlook the mountaintops and valleys endured by those who help others. For Mark Petersen, CEO of Stronger Philanthropy, those high-impact grants and dead-end disasters parallel a physical pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. Learn from his journey the real reason we need to give back and work together. Mark talks about: * what the Camino is and why he chose to walk it * how long it takes and the interesting people you meet along the way * if we've lost the faith and hope that God will provide * what we can do to give back in our everyday lives * his book and what a philanthropist is * how he and his family became givers themselves * why philanthropy and pilgrimage work together * taking things slowly and fathering people along the way "But you can move beyond [giving being a transactional experience], to letting giving become a transformational event in your life."
