Map_of_Convergent_ThinkingHomicide, infanticide, genocide, suicide…what does it all mean? Let’s investigate what the word ‘murder’ means. Ethical and legal questions will be on the table as we consider real-world cases along with a few movie clips and examples from literature. Police shootings, mercy-killing, terrorism, and self-defense are all open for discussion. Come prepared to think and to talk.
