Calling, Career & Commitment - Religious Studies Alumni Roundtable

Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Klein Conference Room, Room A510, Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 510 Room 510, 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011

We'd like to invite you to the Sixth Annual "Calling, Career, and Commitment."

Each year Eugene Lang College invites a group of alumnae/i to speak on how their work and careers align with their callings and commitments, as shaped by their experiences as students at Lang. 

Inaugurated in 2013, this series is organized by Lang's Religious Studies program, but reaches beyond that field to speak on social justice, advocacy, and the empowerment of marginalized populations in New York City. It builds on and builds out our alumnae/i community, and allows currently enrolled students to think more deeply about their own careers, commitments and callings.

This year's panel will feature James Marks, scholar of Buddhism and Indian philosophy, who will reflect on the rewards as well as the challenges of pursuing an academic life and career. James received a B.A. from Lang (2009), a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School (2012), and is currently at work on a PhD dissertation at UC Berkeley. 

The series is moderated by Katherine KursLang Professor of Religious Studies.

The panel will be followed by a Q&A. There is no registration required.

Sponsored by the Religious Studies program at Eugene Lang College.
