Middlebury political scientist Sarah Stroup asks: What topics are suitable for public discussion? And how can we facilitate productive disagreements? She explores how to deliberate hot topics in ways that are respectful and ultimately helpful.

First Wednesdays are supported in part by the National Life Group Foundation and the Institute of Museum & Library Services through the Vermont Department of Libraries.

Partner: Middlebury College and the Mellon Foundation

The Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays series is held on the first Wednesday of every month from October through May in nine communities statewide, featuring speakers of national and regional renown. Talks in Essex Junction are held at Brownell Library unless otherwise noted.  The National Life Group Foundation and the Vermont Department of Libraries are the statewide underwriters of First Wednesdays. “America in a New, More Dangerous World” is underwritten by Vermont Council on World Affairs. Brownell Library is underwritten by Brownell Library Foundation; The Essex Agency Inc.; Kolvoord, Overton and Wilson; and RETN.
