Look what’s happening at the Full Circle Bookstore in June, while there get a book, drink some coffee and chat with humanitarians.
Tuesdays in June
Café at Full Circle Bookstore
The Oklahoma Humanities Council, in collaboration with Full Circle Bookstore, is pleased to announce our latest program to show why the humanities matter. Humanities Forum will bring people together to talk about contemporary issues. The emphasis will be on the public exchange of ideas and perspectives—public, as in “everyone is welcome,” and exchange, as in “you offer your opinion, other people add their ideas, and we all walk away with a better understanding of each other and our world.”
Under the Forum model, participants are asked to read a short humanities text (available at Full Circle Bookstore), which serves as the springboard for conversation. Discussions are moderated by a scholar to ensure a productive atmosphere where differing ideas are treated with curiosity and mutual respect.
Rachel Jackson will serve as the scholar facilitator for the pilot project. She has an M.A. in English from the University of Tulsa and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Composition, Rhetoric, and Literacy, with a focus on Oklahoma regional studies, at the University of Oklahoma.
