How does “free speech” operate on a private, liberal arts campus? Where are the legal boundaries? How do we make sense of the impact of speech on others, especially in relation to power, equity, and privilege? Where are the tensions between speech and community?
This symposium seeks to explore these questions and more as we situate them in the context of Lewis & Clark College. Join us for a day of discussion and dialogue with students, staff, and faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Education and Counseling, Law School, and Common Services.
The Third Culture Kids Club will be welcoming Emmy and Telly award-winning producer, speaker, author and educator Teja Arboleda for the 6th Annual TCK Symposium. Third Culture Kids are a group of people who grew up outside of their parents’ culture. We will discuss transitional issues when navigating between cultures that both TCKs and non-TCKs face, and what we can do to make cross-cultural transitions easier. Some key topics will include: assimilation, integration, culture shock and reverse culture shock, traditions or language that cannot be translated, and stereotypes. We will also talk about how these experiences impact identity and relationships with others. Both TCKs and non-TCKs are welcome!
