Framing the Dialogue

The Commons presents this series, in collaboration with campus partners and visiting scholars, to invite dialogue across disciplines, that references the broader conversations we face at a societal level. These events broach topics of intersectional identity, community, and the sociopolitical implications of events. While they address themes that are at times difficult to discuss, they encourage conversations worth having. Through this series we endeavor to frame these topics so that conversation is productive despite the difficulty and potential for disagreement.

We recognize that the only way to understand different perspectives is to hear them, and to keep asking questions. Please feel encouraged to contribute to the discussion, and recognize that many of these topics are particularly sensitive.

Partners in programming include: the KU Libraries, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Center for Civic & Social Responsibility, the KU Honors Program, the Office of First-Year Experience, the KU Law School, Peace & Conflict Studies, the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity, the Hall Center for the Humanities, the Spencer Museum of Art, the Department of English, the Department of Design, and the School of Architecture & Design.
