Through the Creative Projects grant from TAMIU and the Humanities Texas grant, Dr. Vergaray and I on behalf of TAMIU and with the assistance of the Laredo Public Library are hosting a series of panel/lecture events through Webex that are open to the public of South Texas. The speakers are invited from various universities and organizations throughout the U.S., each a proven expert in their theoretical or practical field. The topic of liberation within various dimensions of social experience (e.g., philosophy and higher education, in regards to gender based violence, from racism, etc.) threads throughout the series.
