Join Dow Center at Hale Library for the Perspectives series
Please join the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies at K-State Libraries this semester for the Perspectives event series.
The series offers K-Staters an opportunity to share information and engage in civil discourse. The goal of the series is to create an environment for ideas to be explored and respected, fostering a spirit of authenticity, curiosity and respect among peers.
This semester's sessions include:
- "The 2 Americas mural," Sept. 15 from noon to 1 p.m.
Join us for a facilitated discussion of the "2 Americas" mural, installed on the ceiling of the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies in Hale Library. "2 Americas" is a collection of work from photographers Luke Townsend and 400 North Creative, Doug Barrett, which amplifies the Manhattan area voices and those enrolled at Kansas State University during the protests of civil unrest in 2020. Led by Nate McClendon, museum specialist at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, participants will engage in collaborative dialogue based on personal reflections on the mural.
- "Missing the missing: Murdered and missing Indigenous women," Oct. 28 from noon to 1 p.m.
- "Transgender Day of Remembrance: Gender resilience," Nov. 16 from noon to 1 p.m.
Each event is highly structured and moderated so participants can share their opinions and concerns in a place of tolerance, compromise and mutual respect. Members of the K-State community are invited to present on the theme and facilitate a conversation.
All sessions will take place in the Dow Center on the second floor of Hale Library. For more information, please visit the Perspectives webpage.
