In the face of the uncertainties of our current moment, both locally and globally, who are we in relation to it - socially, spatially, and molecular?
A Virtual Symposium in Three Parts: April 20, May 13, and Jun 14, 2021
The Expanded Dialogues Symposium itself will take place over three days, from mid-April to mid-June, with one Dialogue event per month. The dialogues themselves will be both expanded and expanding: By ‘expanded’, they aim to be events which go beyond the usual disciplinary confines; by ‘expanding’, they will follow a model which progressively broadens itself, bringing more people into the discussion as the each event unfolds.
Fractured Communication, Fragmented Society, part two of the symposium, will explore questions such as: how can we handle the difficulties to communicate across groups, especially considering the barriers to communication for some identities (Black, Indigenous, people of colour, LGBTQ+)?
