UIS Lunch & Learn Series explores passionate discussions in Discourse and Discord

The 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Illinois serves as the backdrop of a presentation on Public Discourse, as part of the University of Illinois Springfield Lunch & Learn series.

Angel Ysaguirre, executive director of the Illinois Humanities Council, will speak on the IHC’s Public Discourse program and discussion of contemporary issues in ways that are passionate, yet thoughtful and respectful. Leslie Goddard, a historical interpreter and author, will portray a women’s suffrage activist and share stories of the women’s suffrage movement.

The program will take place on Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. in the Public Affairs Center (PAC) Conference Room C/D, located on the lower level of the PAC on the UIS campus.

The cost for the hot buffet lunch and program is $20/per person. Reservations are requested, as seating is limited. Seating is available in the back for those who do not purchase the luncheon buffet. A discounted series subscription is available for $50/per person.

The program is presented by the UIS Alumni SAGE Society and Illinois State Historical Society.

The final Lunch & Learn event for 2014 is “Celebrating the Holidays” on December 11.

These lunch-time programs will stimulate thinking as they build upon the university's tradition of open and intelligent dialogue.

You may register online.
