Matters of Urgency

When current events call for dialogue on a particular topic in an urgent way, Lannan Center responds through its Matters of Urgency series. These events can come together swiftly and bring together thinkers, activists, and writers to bring attention and a direct response to global or local affairs. This series focuses on political, as opposed to strictly poetical, events.
