Humanities Lecture Series
Our Humanities Lecture Series for 2019-20 focuses on IDENTITY AND COMMUNICATION. How do we tell our stories in ways that convey and shape our identities? How can we complicate mainstream narratives that privilege some identities and marginalize or even erase others? What is the role of freedom of speech in identity formation and sustainability? At a moment in which issues surrounding identity are perhaps more complex than ever, this year’s Humanities Lecture Series invites us to consider our relationships to multiple identities within ourselves and others. It also questions the very notion of identity and its implications for our society and culture.
