What topic or topics does “Dis/Unity and Difference” bring to mind? Who in your field might we invite to help us consider and discuss that topic/those topics? Please help the center plan meaningful programming around this theme.

To facilitate ongoing exploration and discussion of this broad theme, the center has decided to extend “Dis/Unity and Difference” for a full two academic years, 2018–19 and 2019–20.

The center will be sending out its invitations for the 2019–20 academic year by the end of the (current) fall 2018 semester. For the center’s advisory board to consider your nomination for the 2018–19 academic year, please submit your suggestion(s) by Friday, September 21

The advisory board will prioritize nominations that include clear — even if provisional — ideas around campus engagement beyond a public talk. This could include (but is not limited to) class visits; meetings with student organizations; workshops for students, faculty, or staff; or work in the broader Grinnell community. We are also especially interested in nominations that include potential collaborations with departments, centers/institutes, or other campus entities.

This description should include the anticipated contribution to curricular and/or co-curricular life. This could include class visits or other kinds of student engagement, workshops or meetings with interested faculty/staff, or engagement with the broader Grinnell community.
