The Center for the Humanities Forum 2019, “Can We Talk? Dialogue and Debate in the Contemporary Academy,” cosponsored by the Provost’s Office and the CAS Dean’s Office, will explore one of the biggest challenges facing universities today: the problem of honest discussion within our own institutional borders. In seeking a topic that would serve our own Boston University community we recognized that no subject was of greater moment than the challenge of open debate, and we hope that our event will promote more meaningful and open dialogue at BU and beyond. This one-day Forum will feature a range of voices from faculty of different levels— contingent, tenured, untenured—to staff, senior administrators, and graduate students.
