March 8 - 12 Programs

Jean’s Pick of the Week: Our Food Friday program on hunger in America garnered so many donations from you, our listeners, so much so that I'm thinking about volunteering! How 'bout you?

Monday: International Adoption: How does the witness of adult adoptees give us a broader understanding of what it means to adopt and be adopted across borders?

Tuesday: Global Shifts in Liberal Arts Education: Today’s global economy is exerting its power on higher education around the world. As technical skills gain in value, broad liberal arts education is losing its popularity. But in two of the world’s economic powerhouses, the United States and China, there are still those who argue for the enduring value of the liberal arts in creating creative, critical thinkers and citizens. We’ll discuss global shifts in higher education and why it matters.

Wednesday: Tea on the Axis of Evil: A film about daily life in Syria featured in next weekend’s Arab Film Festival in the Twin Cities.

Thursday: Inside Islam: Art of Qur’anic Recitation: Among Muslims, Qur’anic recitation is a highly advanced art form intended to move, inspire, engage, and transport all those who listen. What is the purpose of Qur’anic recitation? How does it relate to life in the 21st century? What’s your personal experience of hearing the Qur’an recited?

Friday: Medicinal Foods: We have a lot to learn from how other cultures approach health and medicine. The authors of Ancient Wisdom, Modern Kitchen: Recipes from the East for Health, Healing, and Long Life, offer dishes as tasty as they are therapeutic: Five Color Stir Fry with Scallops and Ginkgo, Soba Noodles with Miso-Sesame Sauce, and Soothing Shrimp with Asparagus and Gogi Berries.

Spring is on the way!
