“What an act of faith and hope!”—Narrative as ResistanceThis 90-minute seminar will use From Gods to Social Justice as a springboard to the question of how narrative art—the art of stories and storytelling—can be used as a mode of resistance. What strength does a story give its teller in the fight for social justice? Is the strength of a story different from the strength of an image? In the fight for human rights, does one win the right to tell a story…or is the story the battleground itself? Featuring short works by Indian authors Arundhati Roy and Amit Chaudhery, this community seminar will explore the use of narrative art in the pursuit of social and environmental justice.The workshop is free and open to the public.

Readings will be provided in advance.Registration required by 4/22/19 at

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
