Hemispheric Dialogues invites key thinkers to lead a discussion about some of the pressing issues of our time. The series envisions informal yet sustained dialogue among faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, artists, and members of the community.

For the discussion, Faye and Laurence have suggested the following:
