Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,
Last year, we introduced Campus Conversation series with the theme of What’s Going on and Why? The focus was on local, national and international issues that directly affect the lives of those in our community. We heard speakers talk about race and policing, immigration and migration, the election, civil liberties, and the First Amendment. Videos of this series are available on the Campus Conversation page of the Provost’s website. This year, rather than following up on the formal presentation the following week, we are lengthening the time of the presentation to 90 minutes and utilizing half of the time for questions and discussion with the audience.
Our first Campus Conversation of this academic year is scheduled for next Tuesday, September 26 from noon to 1:30 pm in the Cardinal Room in Student Center East. Dr. Nancy MacLean of Duke University will present The Origins of the Radical Right and the Crisis of Our Democracy. Dr. MacLean’s talk will be based on her outstanding new book, Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America, which was nominated for the National Book Award just last week. A moderated discussion and audience Q&A will follow Dr. MacLean’s talk.
I hope you will join me and your fellow students, faculty and staff for this Campus Conversation.
