Starting Your Career in a Gig Economy: Hays Science Hall 104 Class of 1951 Lecture Hall, 12:00PM - 1:00PM
James Kennedy ’16 will share his experience starting a career in a creative field in Los Angeles, and what he has learned about navigating contract-based work in a gig economy to propel your career forward. James successfully turned an internship with an alumnus in L.A. into a full-time position, independently negotiated several contract jobs, and now works for Nike Global Sales WHQ in Portland as a Presentation Specialist and Communications Designer. If you are apprehensive about starting a career in a creative and competitive field like graphic design or digital marketing and want to learn how to keep steady work and income to support yourself post-graduation, this session is for you. Gig economy and contractual based work also affects many other fields today including technology, engineering, and theater to name only a few. RSVP in WabashWorks required. Lunch Provided. Smart Casual Dress.

Alex Gillham '13 Epicurus: the Distinction between Mortal & Immortal Goods: Center Hall 216 Classroom, 12:10PM - 1:00PM
Epicurus on the Distinction between Mortal and Immortal Goods
The concept of goods is prominent in Epicurus’ ethics, although the secondary literature has paid very little attention to what Epicurus takes a good to be. Epicurus also distinguishes between mortal and immortal goods specifically, but no one has attempted to make sense of what he takes the difference between these to be. In this talk, I hope to get clear on just what immortal and mortal goods are. I outline two possibilities. On one view, the goods themselves are either mortal or immortal. On the other view, the goods happen to be possessed by either mortal or immortal beings. If the first view is correct, then immortal goods are those that are permanent in their existence, and mortal goods are those that can go out of existence. If the second view is correct, then immortal goods are those that are possessed by beings who do not die, while mortal goods are those possessed by beings who do. Each view poses problems for Epicurus, but I argue that we should prefer the second view because it allows for greater coherence among Epicurus’ views.
