The speakers have prerecorded lectures about their recent and current curatorial projects that will serve as a departure point for the roundtable discussion. Please click on the presentation titles below to access the talks via a private YouTube channel.
We encourage the incorporation of these talks and related bibliography into fall 2021 courses. We invite instructors to adopt a curriculum module that will culminate in students posting questions to the panelists through the online portal.
