Ethics for Breakfast:
From Sheldon to
Sherlock: Autism in Popular Culture
Continental Breakfast and Discussion

Friday, Jan. 23, 2015, 8-9 a.m.

Hutton Honors College Great Room

SIGN-UP REQUIRED: See details below

Do pop-culture representations of autism help us understand the spectrum or take us off course? What are the consequences for those with autism and our understanding of autism when celebrities say they are on the autism spectrum? Do such self-declarations help or hinder? What are the implications when autism becomes a pop-culture shorthand for a whole range of behaviors that don’t meet medical definitions?

Join us for an opportunity to sit down over coffee and a croissant to discuss these and other questions and their ethical dimensions, all the while keeping in mind:
What values are at stake? Who is affected? Who should have a say? How should competing interests be negotiated? What would you do?

Our facilitator for this discussion will be
Bernice Pescosolido, IU Distinguished Professor of Sociology and director of the Indiana Consortium for Mental Health Services Research. She has focused her research and teaching on social issues in health, illness, and healing.

Cases or short readings will be distributed in advance to provide a focus or context for the discussion.

SIGN-UP INFO: If you are interested in attending this event, please check your schedule to make sure you are available for the entire event and email Becca Creath (, indicating you wish to sign up for the “Ethics-Autism” breakfast and include your name, email address, year in school, and field(s) of study. Space is limited so we will let you know by email if a space was available when you replied. This program is a collaboration with the HHC Autism Mentoring Program.

The Ethics for Breakfast discussion series for undergraduate students is co-sponsored by the Hutton Honors College and the Wells Scholars Program. Topics are drawn from local events, national and international news, research by IU scholars, and ethics debate competitions. Cases or short readings for each discussion will be distributed in advance, and at each session a facilitator will provide a short summary of the key issues to get the discussion started.

Literacy Through PlayWriting


The Arts in Education Club at Indiana University is happy to announce the second workshop in our 2011-2012 series. On October 20 from 5:30 -6:30 pm (location TBD),  Mr. Jeffery Allen, Producing Artistic Director at Odd fellows Playhouse Youth Theater, Director of Education, Cleveland Public Theatre, Actor-Teacher, Great Lakes Theater Festival and the Head of Life Long Learning at the Waldron Arts Center, will facilitate a participatory literacy through playwriting workshop. Based in elements of play-building, Mr. Allen will lead participants through multiple arts strategies designed to help educators infuse playwriting into their daily curricular plans. Mr. Allen will present sample language-arts-standards-aligned lesson plans, and assessment and evaluation rubrics coordinated with the basic structures of playwriting.


This workshop will be the first of the Club’s designated community outreach projects. Participants in the workshop will be invited to be part of a group who will take this out into the community. The Literacy through Playwriting workshop is connected to the Bloomington Playwrights Projects Mini Play Competition. Dr. Gustave Weltsek, working with the Waldron Arts Center, the BPP staff, and several teachers from MCCSC revised the event to align with the county’s learning objectives. The Arts Club is taking this workshop on the road and offering it free to any teacher or
school in MCCSC who may be interested in using playwriting as literacy and or would like to participate in the mini-playwriting competition.


This workshop is open to all and space is limited to 25. Please contact Audrey Sams at to reserve your space.
