Public Invited to Seventh Annual Day of Dialogue
The University of Montana’s seventh annual Day of Dialogue will be Thursday, Oct. 25. The Day of Dialogue is a campuswide series of events focused on diversity topics. Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members discuss, present, perform and exhibit art throughout the day.
Participants can explore topics such as race, gender, ethnicity, ability/disability, religion, sexual orientation, class, social hierarchy and privilege. Day of Dialogue events, which are participatory in nature, are created by UM students, faculty and staff and community members.
The Day of Dialogue will begin at 9:10 a.m. in the University Center South Atrium. Participants then can choose from more than 17 free educational sessions that begin at 9:40 a.m., 11:10 a.m., noon, 1:10 p.m. and 2:40 p.m. on the third floor of the University Center.
A closing cultural session will include the lecture by Monica Bauer titled “Art. Class. Nation. Location.” in the UC Theater. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for a light reception before the 6 p.m. lecture.
