Panel Discussion: Community Conversations

with Hebrew College, North Bennet Street School, and UMass Boston

To demonstrate the variety and richness of “essential knowledge” and the ways it can be defined, the cabinet in “Required Reading: Reimagining a Colonial Library” is filled with titles selected by ten community partners. Join three of our partners for a panel discussion moderated by Rajini Srikanth, Dean of the Honors College at UMass Boston, for a discussion centered around the question: “"What qualifies as knowledge and how is it transmitted?"
