Fall 2017 Speaker Series: Change


Welcome to the Frank Islam Athenaeum Symposia speaker series at Montgomery College. We celebrate the humanities with free public events to the college and community. We invite a diversity of perspectives to inspire meaningful conversation and critical thinking around our collective experiences. All are invited to join the conversation.

The fall 2017 semester speaker lineup explores the concept of change: from the changing demographics of our culture and country, to an intimate account of how a diagnosis of Alzheimer's can change the experience of a relationship. These shifts, sometimes seismic and other times seemingly subtle, shape what it means to be human in an increasingly diverse society.
