Advocating Change: Public Discourse in Turbulent Times

Featuring keynote speaker Dr. Eric King Watts from Wake Forest University, this symposium will explore what it means to utilize one’s voice among the turbulent discourse all around us. Dr. Watts is a rhetorical and cultural studies scholar whose work focuses on voice and the imposition of voicelessness, particularly through the lens of race but also incorporates gender and class. Breakout sessions will follow the keynote address.
