Social Cohesion Dialogue


Our Social Cohesion Dialogue puts acclaimed authors and their inspiring books in conversation with ASU and audiences across and beyond Arizona. Since the spring of 2019, Social Cohesion Dialogues have created memorable dialogues and calls to action with  accomplished writers and readers from diverse communities.  Join us this year as we grapple with vital issues of culture, human rights, race, class, environmental justice, education, civil rights and democracy that are shaping our lives and societies.
