History Professor Panelist in Baylor Conversation Series Panel
Dr. Ronald Angelo Johnson, Associate Professor of History and The Ralph and Bessie Mae Lynn Chair of History, will be a panelist on President Linda Livingstone’s next Baylor Conversation Series event in October.
The Baylor Conversation Series returns at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, with a virtual conversation on civil discourse as we enter the election season. The annual series – begun by President Linda A. Livingstone, Ph.D., in 2017 – will feature three distinguished Baylor faculty members, each representing different disciplines, who will share their insight on how we can approach civil discourse in the classroom, on campus and in everyday conversations.
"Whether in politics, church congregations, on the Baylor campus or even within our own families, there is a significant need for civil discourse in today's society," President Livingstone said. "While we may not agree, civil discourse requires mutual respect and objectivity without hostility, while demonstrating an appreciation for the experiences of others. This topic is vitally important for higher education – and especially at Baylor – as we strive to be a marketplace of ideas and extend the love of Christ toward others."
A Zoom link for the panel conversation will be mailed out the day before the event.
