As a service to University supporters and the greater Trinity community, the Special Events Office in collaboration with other University departments presents the Spring 2021 Food for Thought Series featuring six free events on varying topics–from epidemiology to Homer’s Iliad to revolutionary women of Texas, and more. You and your guest are invited to attend these engaging live presentations and real-time discussions in a virtual format.

What happens when the glossy sheen of advertising and public relations encounters less than shimmering realities? The Mexico/US border is one such site of contestation for the persuasion industries as they handle controversial client-work related to immigration. Learn how different agencies have responded to pressure by resigning from such work within their own ranks. Experience a virtual-reality representation of an immigration detention cell. Comments and questions will be welcomed in this thought-provoking event.
