About this event
Talk of the Times: After 10 Years – Tunisia and Arab Spring Retrospective, presented by Elizabeth Bishop (History) and Model Arab League Students Macy Birdwell & Parker Weaver
About the Dialogue Series: Since its inception in 1995, the Philosophy Dialogue Series at Texas State University has evolved from a few presentations a semester to over 100 events in 2020-21, involving over 4000 people in dialogue. Now celebrating its twenty-sixth year, the series enriches the cultural and academic life of both the university and broader community by providing an open forum for the lively exchange and critical evaluation of diverse ideas. The Dialogue Series provides a structured opportunity for thoughtful conversation about topics of common concern.
Why Dialogue? Dialogue differs from discussion or debate. Where discussion is open-ended, and often without any goal-in-view, and debate is about persuasion or winning, dialogue is about increasing understanding – of ourselves, of each other, and of the world we live in.
