Roger Williams University professor and Scholars at Risk (SAR) Student Advocacy Seminar leader Adam Braver will lead a workshop for students and faculty who are interested in ethical-political activism within the space of a collective pedagogy.

In collaboration with SAR, Braver’s seminars adopt an individual writer or thinker from SAR’s list of imprisoned or persecuted scholars and develop advocacy strategies to help raise consciousness and ultimately aid in the release of this person from prison or from persecution. Braver will describe his many years of experience leading these seminars, recommend a variety of best practices, and facilitate discussion.
