Brown Bag Series explores Chagall and 'The Ethics of Mirth'

Coastal Carolina University lecturer Eva Kort will hold a discussion on "Developing the Moral Imagination Through Art: The Treatment of Animals on Marc Chagall's Ethics of Mirth" on Thursday, March 21, at noon in the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts, room 101. This discussion is part of the Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values' Brown Bag Lunch Series. Attendance is free.

Kort, a lecturer in CCU's Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies, will focus on the paintings of Russian artist Marc Chagall. Critics have described his works including animals as "dreamy" with a "fluid coexistence between animals and humans."

Kort is a graduate of Florida University where she earned a Ph.D. in philosophy, American University where she earned a master's degrees in philosophy and social policy and the University of Kentucky where she earned a master's degree in anthropology. Her areas of scholarly specialization are applied ethics and modern philosophy.

The Brown Bag Lecture Series is sponsored by CCU's Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values. For more information, contact them at 843-349-4149.
