August 9, 2013 from 8:45-12PM at the ISU Alumni Center- Professional Social Work Ethics in Light of the Postmodern Turn
Presented by Dr. Dan Liechty
Although “postmodernism” was originally associated with art and literary criticism, it now characterizes a broad perspective, a way of viewing and experiencing the world that impacts our deepest life philosophies. Even people only vaguely familiar with the term are now often thorough postmodernists. You well may be one of them! In this seminar we will explore this postmodern turn, especially in the context of its impact on professional social work ethics. This exercise should be beneficial for postmodernists and other alike, if not to help you understand your own thinking, then certainly to better understand the thinking of your colleagues.
