This session will use superhero narratives to explore some positive and negative lessons in moral leadership that these stories offer us.

In the last panel of Amazing Fantasy 15, which introduces us to Spider-Man, Stan Lee writes that "in this world, with great power there must also come--great responsibility!" What is the exact link between the two? These...

What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?

7:00pm to 8:00pm

Location: 

Online

Does everybody know what they’re going into right out of college? We get the idea that by choosing a college, and choosing a major course of study while in college, we are choosing a career—a life-long career—as though we know at age or 18 or 20 what it is we’ll be excited about doing in our 30s and 40s—even our 80s. But does anybody really know that?

Hear what Harvard faculty across the arts, sciences, and social sciences have to say in response to the question, “is there a right way to choose, and pursue, a career?” The panel will consider the relationship between college,...

Is Now the Time to Build a Better System? K–12 Education and Systemic Racism in the Era of COVID-19

2:00pm to 3:00pm

Location: 

Online

The current coronavirus crisis has illuminated long-standing inequities in US education, conditions that have been well-documented for decades but remained unrecognized by many until now.

Or is now the time to reinvent our public educational systems to establish a new, more equitable baseline? Can and should we attempt such reform during the continuing political, health, and economic crises? If not now,...
