The focus on the panel will be on how factors, including social movement, organized protest and technology have shaped public discourse over recent decades. It will also discuss the importance of civic engagement and participation in politics. Jocelyn Evans, associate dean of the College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, and Kelly Carr, an assistant professor of communication, will join Graham on the panel.

“I think this discussion can get more people involved in the sometimes-daunting action of public discourse,” Carr, whose research has explored arguments on academic freedom, said. “Getting people involved in local politics is something I hope this discussion can accomplish.”

Students eager to learn how they can become better at engaging in public discussions and disagreements would benefit from attending.

“Students who are perhaps not sure how to make their opinions heard will enjoy the panel,” Carr said. “It can also help students become more passive listeners as well.”    

Bob Graham served nearly 40 years in state legislator, as governor and U.S. senator and has been involved in almost every major public policy issue in modern Florida history. He was also the co-chairman of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling in 2010.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
