11:30 AM - 12:30 PM Introduction to Open Access

The pandemic has underscored the importance of barrier-free public accessibility of scholarly and pedagogical works.  You need easier access to others’ works - and they need easier access to yours. Funders are increasingly mandating Open Access to the research they fund.

This online Webinar will cover the basics of Open Access publishing:  what it is and how it started.  You’ll leave with practical tips for locating freely available research produced by others - as well as finding quality Open Access venues to share your own work. 

After registration you will receive a separate email from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs with the Zoom information.

3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Philosopher Lewis R. Gordon: Why the Empowerment of Black Lives Is a Struggle for Democracy—A Talk on Freedom, Justice, and Decolonization


Presented by the Department of Africana Studies

How can a country be democratic when some people’s votes count more than others’? What should be done when one of the consequences of a long history of double standards and systemic disenfranchisement is that some people’s lives also count more than the rest of us? Drawing upon ideas from Africana thought, especially regarding freedom, justice, and decolonization, this talk will address this set of questions in light of recent events, including the attempted coup in the storming of the U.S. Capitol in January 2021. Presented by Lewis R. Gordon, professor and chair of the Department of Philosophy, University of Connecticut.
