On December 10th 2019, the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS, pronounced “cause”) is holding its first ever Common CAHSS conference (learn more here). The topic for this first year is human rights, and more than 20 academic programs from across CAHSS will contribute to a broader conversation on human rights via presentations, performances, art work, research talks, and more.
- When: Tuesday, December 10th, with programing all day
- Where: Weidner Center for the Performing Arts
- Keynote: Rais Bhuiyan, 6 p.m.
One of the goals of the conference is to “highlight how the CAHSS is distinctly poised—given its breadth of majors and expertise—to leverage liberal arts in tackling pressing issues.” To that end, please use the space below to add comments on how you feel your own experiences at UW-Green Bay contribute to conversations surrounding human rights.
If you are a faculty or staff member, for example, how have you used your expertise to encourage learning or dialogue around human rights issues? If you are a student, how have you engaged in learning or dialogue around human rights issues in your classes or campus activities? Please feel free to share any other ways you have engaged with human rights-related topics during your time at UW-Green Bay.
