Voice, Activism, and Democracy Symposium

March 19th, 2019

Three sessions, 9:30 to 10:45, 11- 12:15 and 2- 3:15

Maple Room, EUC

The Voice, Activism, and Democracy conference will enable students, community members, and faculty to share their scholarship, creative products, and activist interventions surrounding contested campus and community issues (ex: the toppling of the Confederate statue Silent Sam, decisions to disinvite campus speakers, the legacy of Occupy Wall Street, anti-immigration protest and speeches). In addition to academic presentations on free speech, the conference will be further designed to include informal events, intergenerational meetings between students and grassroots activists, and cooperative activities with the goal to enhance political friendships among scholars, community members, and students.
