    "By Our Love" Advanced Screening


    via ZOOM.

    A by-invitation-only, advanced screening event will take place on Thursday, January 21st, for clergy and faith leaders from within the UConn interfaith community.

    A post-screening dialogue will follow, hosted by the UCONN Humanities Institute’s “Encounters Series” program.

    About The Encounters Series

    The Encounters Series, a program dedicated to fostering unexpected conversations around divisive issues and obscure knowledge, began in Spring 2017 with the sponsorship of the Humility & Conviction in Public Life project, the Hartford Public Library (Hartford History Center), and the Wadsworth Atheneum (The Amistad Center for Art & Culture).

    Encounters dives deeply into the subjects that are of interest to the Greater Hartford community through facilitated, small-group dialogues followed by a “question and answer”-style conversation with UConn faculty and community partners. Readings are provided beforehand to better encourage informed and informal dialogue within conversations that often prove to be polarizing, and thus unproductive.
