St. Vincent College School of Social Sciences, Communication and Education will continue its 16th series of talks on Spirituality and Aging at 3 p.m. March 21 at the Fred. M. Rogers Center on campus. The topic of this second presentation will be “Talking to Young People about Media” in conjunction with the series theme, “Listening across Generations.”
Dr. Mary Beth Spore, dean of the St. Vincent College School of Social Sciences, Communication and Education, which sponsors the series, said that the session will address questions such as: Why are young people always on their cell phones? What are they doing on those cell phones? Why would they rather watch their cell phone than talk to me during their visit?
“On the side of the younger generation are many corresponding questions,” Spore said. “I will lead the session but will ask the Rev. Vernon Holtz, OSB, and other faculty members and students to participate in the discussion as well. I will ask both the students and the audience to answer some questions from their point of view. Then we will discuss aspects of the topic.”
Admission is free and open to the public. Persons of all ages are welcome to attend and share in the discussion and questions.
Parking for the physically challenged is available at the Fred M. Rogers Center. All participants may park in Parking Area A and enter the Rogers Center at the first floor entrance.
The final presentation in the series will be “Talking to Young People about Older People,” 3 p.m. April 18.
