University Speaker Series

Change and Continuity at the Centennial

The University Speaker Series was designed to improve the intellectual climate of Georgia State University while creating a culture of increased communication and dialogue. As we enter GSU’s Centennial, we will capture talks and conversations under the theme of “Change and Continuity at the Centennial” focusing on various topics related to democratic societies, race and racism, gender and sexism, class and capitalism, the environment, information and technology, and the future of public research institutions.
