Life Raft Debate

Wed, January 16, 2019 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Arts Building. Free . In the 1st annual UBC Okanagan Life Raft debate we imagine that a catastrophic event has wiped out most of humanity and the survivors (the audience) must sail off to rebuild society.

Only one final seat remains on the life raft and five professors will each argue that their discipline is the one indispensable area of study that the new civilization will need to survive.

Finally, one professor will take on the role of devil’s advocate and argue that the survivors should actually choose no one and that their new society will be better off without a professor aboard.

Featuring :

Dr. Stephen McNeil (Chemistry)
Dr. Christine Schreyer (Anthropology)
Dr. Ray Taheri (Engineering)
Dr. Michael Woodworth (Psychology)
Denise Kenney (Theater/Interdisciplinary Performance)
Dr. Marianne Legault (Devil’s Advocate)
