As a part of Arts Week here on campus, the Guelph Classics Society is running their "Guelphmopylae" event for a second year in a row. Last year, Professor John Walsh wanted to get 300 students together for an epic photograph in the pass between Johnston Hall and MacKinnon to emulate the famed Battle of Thermopylae (as represented in the movie 300) and had a decent turnout but not quite at the magic number. This year they hope to make it all the way and get 300 people in that pass. So, please show up on October 24 at 4:30p.m.

Philosophy Movie Night - "IT COMES AT NIGHT"

Teasing the upcoming “Philosophy of Horror” group for Winter 2019, we will gather to view and discuss the film “It Comes at Night” – a post-apocalyptic tale of fear, uncertainty and trust. Drawing from the political writings of Thomas Hobbes, the artwork of Hieronymus Bosch (“The Garden of Earthly    Delights”)and Eugene Thacker’s exploration of Dante’s Inferno in his book Tentacles Longer Than Night, we might consider several questions. What is the obsession of our culture with films depicting the ‘end of the world’?
