Wilson Visiting Speakers 2019-2020

Our 2019-20 visiting speaker series has undergone an overhaul this year. First, thanks to the success of our series on Democracy, Citizenship, and Freedom, we have decided to focus our entire series around a specific theme. And this year’s theme: Race and Racism. We have invited a wide variety of historians, working on various periods, peoples, and regions for this year’s series. Second, thanks to the success of our evening (7pm) talks, we have decided to move many of our talks from our usual 3pm time slot to 7pm. This will allow more members of the public to attend our talks.
