PROGRAMS > Conversation Club
Join us on the third Thursday of each month for lively conversations using history as a basis.
The Conversation Club endeavors to make new ideas and perspectives accessible. Re-examining the past frames meaningful dialogue, learning, and reflection, and helps us envision the future.
Our club is based on "The Conversation Club" originally formed c. 1818, which gathered to discuss the leading issues of the day in Farmington, Connecticut.
Starting September 21, 2023: A seven-program Conversation Club series
When Two Worlds Met
When Two Worlds Met is a series of seven programs that examine the time of early contact between Indigenous Peoples and European explorers and settlers of Northeast America. Each of the seven programs, presented by Gail White Usher, focuses on a different topic in the overall theme of the impacts of European interactions upon Indigenous Northeastern North American life and culture. The series is online and free to the public; registration is requested. See below to register or to view recorded sessions.
The third installment, "Through European Eyes," was reviewed by Jamil Ragland for the New Haven Independent on November 17, 2023!
