Spring 2022 Difficult Dialogues flyerThe Spring 2022 installment of the Difficult Dialogues series between the Center for Humanities & the Arts and University Libraries seeked to address what it means to make a mistake and then to repair the harm (unintentional or intentional) that happens when we make mistakes with our friends, peers, co-workers, family, or on social media. We sometimes use an expression that may be anti-trans, ableist, racially insensitive, sexist—sometimes without knowing or understanding. We may do things that cause others harm, and we don’t understand what’s happening until we get called out.

So what do we do when we get called out? How do we rectify the harm and move forward?

This event featured Patricia Gonzalez, Assistant Dean for Inclusive Practices; Jessica Ladd-Webert, Director of the Office of Victim Assistance; and Elias Sacks, Director of the Program in Jewish Studies. The event will be moderated by Tyler Keyworth, Assistant Director of Restorative Justice & Conflict Resolution.

This event took place on Tuesday, January 25th at 12:30pm MT. Registration was required to attend. Due to the sensitivity of this topic, we did not record this event.
