The Art of Disagreement

An evening of talks and a conversation with Caner Dagli and Zaid Shakir

The Art of Disagreement

Can our disagreements be more fruitful and less divisive? We live in an age marked by contentious debate not only about politics, but also about even more fundamental commitments, such as our varied philosophical and theological approaches and even our understanding of science and the arts. Join us for what promises to be an enlightening evening with talks by Caner Dagli and Zaid Shakir, followed by an on-stage conversation, about how we can arrive at disagreement without disengagement.

Livestream begins 7:30 pm EST | Thursday, September 28, 2017

Venue: ADAMS Center, Sterling, Virginia
