Chapter 2: Global Voices and Why This Symposium Matters
Proceedings: Global Voices on the University of Dayton Campus
University of Dayton
Why hold this symposium now? In the past year, we have seen in this country a contest over definitions of community, over the basic rights of immigrants in this country, over the role of the U.S. in the wider world. Tensions are high, demagogues are out in force, and the results have been frightening to those targeted by the state, and frightening to those who see in these developments something too reminiscent of the worst parts of the twentieth century. It is appropriate in moments like this to appreciate the successes and recognize the problems, both realized and potential, that exist in our own place of work, and in our place of study.
