Fall 2021 Colloquium Series - 19 November

November 19, 2021

Carrie Jenkins, University of British Columbia :: Sad Love: Romance and the Search For Meaning
Friday, November 19, 2021

Abstract: Abstract: Our dominant romantic paradigm for love centers happiness: we talk of successful relationships being "happy ever after," or of being "happy with someone" if things are going well. I argue that we need a paradigm more accommodating of the full range of human emotional life, including both the "positive" and "negative."

Talk will be held at the Burnaby Campus in room WMC 3260 from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. 

Please note that attendance is restricted to SFU students, faculty, and staff.
