Global Dialogues 2019 Concluding Conference: Citizens Against the State Wolff Conference Room, Room D1103, Albert and Vera List Academic Center GENERAL PUBLIC The Global Dialogues Fellowship is a semester-long study program organized by the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies for alumni of our Democracy & Diversity Institutes. The fellowship affords civic-minded but politically vulnerable scholars from Eurasia — young curators of democracy in that region – an opportunity to join The New School for Social Research for one semester, where they address critical concerns of democratic culture and governance through joint work with four NSSR students. This year's Final Conference, Citizen's Against the State: Emergent Alternative Imaginaries, will offer both critiques of the state's incursion on democratic rights as well as highlight grassroots democratic mobilization and active citizenship lending to alternative political imaginaries. ***This event will be followed by a reception.
