No expertise or prerequisites are required. We only ask that you read the selected texts. Any version of the texts may be used to prepare for discussion, but for your convenience links to online versions are provided above.


If you think you will be attending the session, please send Max Yela an email (maxyela@uwm.edu) about your intention to attend (even if you decide not to attend later). He will accept notices of intent until 5:00 p.m., April 27. Between 6:30 and 6:45 on the day of our discussion, April 27, you will receive an email from him with an automatic password-protected URL. Please use that URL to join the session (you will of course need to use a computer with a microphone and a video camera in it — if you want to be seen, that is). When you join, you will be placed in a waiting room that Max will be monitoring to allow attendees into the session. Only those he has emailed will be allowed into the session. This process is intended to maximize the security of the meeting.

These discussions are free and open to the public.
