The A&S Department’s courses are busy with guest visits from practitioners, giving our students a chance to engage directly with changemakers regarding the challenges and opportunities in their work. In Anthropology of Education in Spring 2021, Prof. Vora’s students had the opportunity to meet educational justice activist Sally Lee.
In Fall 2021, Prof. Vora’s Theories of Society students met performance artist Emilio Rojas during his campus residency.
Also in Fall 2021, Prof. Lee’s Introduction to Sociology students heard a guest lecture by Lafayette alum and civil rights attorney Mark Goldstone, ’81, on “COVID and Chaos: Free Speech After 2020-21: Will it survive the Pandemic and the Insurrection?” Mark was kind enough to respond in writing to each students’ question about his work defending clients charged with civil disobedience offenses during protests, and one of our A&S 103 students will extern for him in January 2022. Thank you Mark, Emilio, and Sally for being so generous with your time and insights!
