Beloit is universally understood as a secular college - a school unaffiliated with any church or religion. But is that the full meaning of our secular character? How do religious students experience the dominant culture? How does being secular mark a student and how does it mark our college in a global context? Starting from the belief that secularity is a position invested with beliefs, attitudes, and assumptions, The Unexamined Life seeks to shed light on how Beloit's secular culture permeates student experience - even without them knowing about it. Based on interviews with students and faculty of both religious and non-religious persuasion this documentary film draws attention to unexamined norms at the college that affect a range of diversity issues.
The film is the subject of Jesse Lopez-Cepero'11 honors term project.
This documentary screening is free and open to the campus and community.
