Event Description:
The J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences invites faculty, staff, students and community members to participate in its new series: Fearless Conversations. The series promotes dialogue about the most pressing and salient issues of our time in an effort to achieve meaningful public discourse in an increasingly divisive culture.

The first event in the series, Fearless Conversations: Memorials, Monuments and Symbolic Protests, will take place Wednesday, Nov. 8 from 5 to 7 p.m. in Giffels Auditorium, 201 Old Main. It is free and open to the public.

Memorials, Monuments and Symbolic Protests engages with recent public debates about monuments and memorials and the historical narratives they affirm. Likewise, panelists will critically examine protest movements and the symbolic gestures and rhetoric they employ. Active audience participation is encouraged.

There will be ample time for dialogue between panelists and the audience. The goal of the event is to facilitate civil discourse around complex and controversial topics in a safe and supportive environment.
