Interested in getting hands-on campaign experience and helping to reelect the President of
the United States?

Obama for America is looking for field organizing interns to work out of our Arlington, VA
office. Interns will gain valuable campaign knowledge and skills, build their resumes, and
work with great people all working to help President Obama win in November.

Arlington County is one of the most important Democratic strongholds in one of the most
important states electorally for the campaign, so interns will be able to see firsthand the
fruits of their labor when the election results come in on November 6.

Responsibilities include:

Contacting and persuading voters

There will also be chances to take on more responsibilities as the campaign progresses

“Nietzsche, Modernity, Politics, Art” (And Lunch!)

4 Mar

I hope you can make it to our “Brown Bag” lunch session — we’ll be ordering some yummo food to enjoy while Professor Winstead leads a discussion on the topic.  This event has been packed in the past — so I suggest you email right now to reserve your spot.  It’s free, and open to everyone in the UHP, but we can only accommodate 30 in our club room (yes, there will be a list) so you need to RSVP by emailing uhp@gwu.edu right away!

Join Professor Winstead for a “Brown Bag” lunch session and some stimulating conversation! (Lunch is provided.)

Nietzsche is widely regarded as the most perceptive critic of the modern project. Professor Winstead will discuss Nietzsche’s critique of liberal modernity and his call for a utopian democracy of poets who practice justice, exercise freedom, and embody joy. Professor Winstead will also discuss how he came to study Nietzsche and soon found himself in Berlin writing on the subject. The talk will be followed by an open discussion and a delicious lunch will be provided.

We can only accommodate so many people in our club room, so we’ll have to limit the event to 30 people.

!! IMPORTANT !! Email uhp@gwu.edu to confirm your spot! Our attendance list is on a first come, first served basis.

Date: Thursday, March 11, 2010
Time: 11:30am – 12:30pm
Location: UHP Club Room

Why You Should Come to Symposium Tommorrow Night

29 Oct

As you know, each semester the Honors Program offers up Symposium.  It covers topics such as the looming energy crisis, political satire, race, sex & the presidency, and more.  This year’s is pretty exciting too.  Here’s some good reason’s why you should go:

  1. It’s a free movie, about something actually really interesting.
  2. There’s a live musical performance.
  3. You just might find inspiration for your halloween costume.

Tomorrow’s Symposium event,  “Music and Politics of Senegal” will feature a screening of the documentary Democracy in Dakar – a film about hip-hop youth and politics in Dakar, Senegal during that country’s 2007 Presidential Election, to be followed by a Q&A session with members of the film crew.

The evening will conclude with a live musical performance and interactive session with some of the film’s featured musicians. While this event is mandatory for students registered for Symposium, it is open and free for all. We hope to see you there in what promises to be an educational and memorable event!

Here’s a trailer:
