Tanner Talks

Launched in Spring 2020, our Tanner Talks bring interdisciplinary scholars, writers, and public figures together with campus and community members for unscripted conversations about contemporary challenges. Each event consists of a one-hour discussion between Director Erika George, our invited speaker, and audience members.

Previous Tanner Talk speakers include Ibram X. Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist; Ruha Benjamin, Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code; and Safiya Noble, Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism.
