Life Raft Debate Panelists Needed
The Life Raft Debate is looking for a few brave souls to serve as panelists, defending their academic discipline at the 21st annual Life Raft Debate on Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. in Palmer Auditorium.
In the debate, we imagine that the world has been nearly annihilated and that humanity can only carry one more person off to found the new world. The panelists argue that their discipline is the one that will best serve the fledgling society to be built. After lively debate and interaction, the audience votes and the winner climbs aboard the Life Raft as the losers, well, lose and drown. To volunteer to be a panelist or to nominate someone, please email Michael Patton.
