Event Description:
Opening Panel - Exit West as a form of speech and action
Panel Video Release - Sept. 18, 2020
Live Discussion - Sept. 25, 2020 - Common Hour

In the hope that it may be possible to bring Mohsin Hamid to campus this year, after his spring 2020 visit was postponed, the College is once again using his novel, Exit West , as a campus reads text. We hope that many classes will choose to engage with this novel throughout the year. Our 2020-2021 program, Engaging in Speech and Action, will offer an opening panel that reads the novel, not so much through the lens of borders and identity--last year’s theme-- but as, itself, a form of speech and action. An opening panel of faculty will offer their reflections on the novel in a video discussion that will be publicly released on September 18, 2020. Then, on September 25, 2020 an open discussion will be held during Common hour (2:00 - 3:15 p.m.) via Zoom.

Faculty Panelists:
Emanuela Kucik, English and Africana Studies
Mohsin Hashim, Political Science
Dawn Longsinger, English
Leticia Robles-Moreno, Theatre and Dance
Mark Stein, History
