Possible topics include:

  • From “Letters from Birmingham Jail” to Between the World and Me: rhetorical approaches to injustice

  • Abigail Fisher, Affirmative Action, and teaching the history of (in)equity in education
  • Feminist utopias/dystopias: the future as allegory for the present
  • Consider presentations or panels that address race, justice, crime and punishment, activism, social change — past and present, locally and nationally, in educational and political settings, in local and national conversations.
