Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere Speaker Series 2023-2024: Scales of Belonging

March 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
scales of belonging

Recent years have given life an experimental feel. As interlocked and unpredictable sources of upheaval become the norm, we ask: how and where do we belong? Exiles and refugees may never belong where they make homes. Migrants may never feel at home where they belong. While some choices we make, others are made for us. People move—as much as they are moved by nature and politics. In another key, we are moved by things that affect us: literature, sports, the lives of others. If shared worlds make life meaningful, then what forces repair and rupture the possibility of community? From football fields and detention centers to the planet itself, the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (CHPS) 2023-24 Speaker Series investigates our myriad Scales of Belonging.
