  1. Thanks for your comment, Sydney. Very much appreciated!

    And thanks for your help with organizing and for your enthusiasm about understanding people with different views.

  2. I’m one of the student organizers of the event, which we hosted as part of a regular Bowdoin discussion series on interesting and controversial issues. I think partnerning with Make Shift and having community members at this event made it the best one we have had by far!

    Sometimes at Bowdoin, campus wide discussions about important issues feel too much like class discussions, theoretical and impersonal. Sharing in a group with community members that don’t attend Bowdoin made our discussion more grounded in our experiences rather than vague academic ideas; we shared personal stories that have led us to think what we do, and heard many real-life examples of concepts.

    Students also crave hearing the perspectives of local Mainers, as Bowdoin is a very different place from the rest of Maine, and many of us have a lot to learn about where we are. Talking about geographical differences and how place might shape morality was fascinating with these groups.

    Craig was a fantastic facilitator, listening deeply and facilitating connections between and among students and community members.

    A huge thank you to Make Shift Coffe House for coming to Bowdoin!
