Sociology/Anthropology Dept. of Ohio Wesleyan Univ. to Host Film

The Sociology/Anthropology Department’s Butler A. Jones Lectureship Program will screen “The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope” on Wednesday, April 7 in the Benes Room.

The documentary explores why people hate and focuses specifically on the Iraq War, the conflict between Israel and Palestine, hostilities toward the LGBTQIA community, and Christian hate groups.

Terree Stevenson, Director of Multicultural Student Affairs, said the film is being brought to campus to encourage thought about the hate speech.

“We’re bringing this film to campus to spark conversation about the issue,” she said. “We want to encourage thought among students.”

A question-and-answer session with the filmmaker, Mike Ramsdell, will directly follow the screening, which is co-hosted by the Student Union on Black Awareness; LGBTIQ Resource Center; President’s Commission on Racial and Cultural Diversity; Office of Multicultural Student Affairs; Office of the Chaplain; Women’s Resource Center; House of Peace and Justice; Amnesty International; B’nai B’rith Hillel; Tauheed; STAND; PRIDE and the Sociology/Anthropology Department.
