Guest Speaker Dr. David Stovall

Since the Spring of 2020, Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been under attack due to distortions and lies about its creation and purpose.  As part of the “Taking a Stand” speaker series, Dr. Stovall will explain what CRT is and its utility in the battle between myth-making and historical accuracy.

This virtual event will take place on Thursday, January 20th. 6:00 – 7:15 PM.

Guest Speaker Dr. Robert Valgenti

Dr. Valgenti is a visiting professor of Philosophy at the University of Bologna.  An expert on food ethics, he is a member of The Menus of Change University Research Collaborative (www.moccollaborative.org), which focuses on using college dining halls to promote healthy, sustainable, and ethical food consumption and distribution.  He will discuss the various ways that the food system not only weaves its way through every facet of campus life, but also offers an opportunity for activism on a wide range of topics.

The lecture will be held in Arts and Letters Hall, Room 103, and attendance will be limited to forty guests.  All attendees must comply with DePaul’s COVID-19 safety protocols and vaccination requirement.  The event will also be broadcast on Zoom for those who would prefer to attend virtually.
