Past Events



December 6th and 7th: "Making Knox: The Anti-Slavery and Abolitionist Aspirations of a Midwestern College"

This workshop is a key component of our Mellon Foundation "Abolition for All Time" grant and is designed to help us explore our roots as an institution connected to abolitionism. Over the course of two days, we will learn more about the founding of Knox, definitions of abolition, past and present, and why they matter for us today.

The workshop will last two days, Tuesday-Wednesday, December 6th and 7th, and run daily from approximately 8:30 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon. It will include opportunities for participants to think differently about the College’s legacy, grapple with founding documents and key questions in its early history, and explore what abolitionism means today. This conversation is for all, regardless of disciplinary specialization, and connects us to our fundamental sense of the educational mission of the College.

Our keynote speakers are Dean Christian Crouch (Bard College) and Professor John F. Bell (Assumption University). In preparation for workshop discussions, attendees will read several short articles for the workshop (available here).

Please RSVP by Dec 1 using this form.
