Social Events

Coffee and Cigarettes - Movie with SOS
Wednesday, February 25th, 5-7 pm
A&S 357 (Sociology Conference Room)

The film is a comic series of short vignettes built on one another to create a cumulative effect, as the characters discuss things as diverse as caffeine popsicles, Paris in the '20s, and the use of nicotine as an insecticide --all the while sitting around sipping coffee and smoking cigarettes. As director Jim Jarmusch delves into the normal pace of our world from an extraordinary angle, he shows just how absorbing the obsessions, joys, and addictions of life can be, if truly observed.

Miss Representation - AGSO Movie Night with SOS
Monday, March 30th 7:30 pm
AS 243
We will be watching Miss Representation, a film that explores the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America, and challenges the media's limited portrayal of what it means to be a powerful woman. As usual, refreshments will be provided.
