Culture and Identity

Date
Sunday, October 28, 2012
Time
03:00 PM–03:45 PM
Culture and Identity

The individual makes up the whole, or does the whole make up the individual? Dr. K. Anthony Appiah will breakdown how world citizenship, national citizenship and establishing one's’ identity blend together to benefit each other. Through questioning and establishing what responsibility individuals owe to varying levels of citizenship, the idea of conversation across different cultures only enhances the identity of individuals.

This talk is part of the 2012 Fall Forum at the Walters Art Museum, a afternoon of discussion where scholars of the humanities, history, race and culture will explore the concept of identity which directly correlates with the Walters Art Museum’s Fall exhibition.

About the Speaker

Dr. K. Anthony Appiah is Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University. His most recent book, The Honor Code, discusses the role of honor and identity in moral change in a number of episodes in China, Britain, and Pakistan.  In April 2012, he was appointed by the Regents of the Smithsonian Museum to the Advisory Board of the National Museum for African Art.

This talk is part of a day forum focused on the special exhibition Revealing the African Presence in Renaissance Europe.
