As part of the Honors College’s efforts to make the HC a more radically welcoming and equitable space, the Equity Team and the Digital Cultures Collaboratory are hosting a game night designed to foster deeper conversations about the nature and practice of leadership and the exercise of power.
Rather than simply reproducing traditional conceptions of leadership that often involve hierarchical, top-down power structures, we seek to question those old models in order to reimagine something new and more just. We will experiment with these ideas in practice by playing a tabletop, role-playing game (The Quiet Year) designed to foster these important discussions and build these skills.
The face-to-face version of this event will take place on the evening of Nov. 11 in Honors House (beginning at 6:30 p.m.) The online version will take place on the evening of Nov. 12. There are a limited number of seats available and only open to students in the Honors College. Priority registration for BIPOC and first-gen students through Oct. 23rd. Future events will be open for non-honors students, so stay tuned!
