Community Conversation Series
Our Community Conversations are small virtual gatherings that are opportunities for our members to lead conversational seminars about topics related to their research and/or related to open inquiry, viewpoint diversity, and constructive disagreement. Attendance is open to all, though only HxA members and affiliates are eligible to host. To see our past Community Conversations topics, take a look at our past events.
The HxCommunities initiative supports scholars within fields of study, geographic regions, and other specific academic communities by providing a space to address the challenges and opportunities unique to each group. We are pleased to share that HxA is able to support HxCommunities events, including virtual and in-person convenings, in the form of $500 reimbursement awards.
2020 Open Inquiry Awards
In order to address society’s most intractable problems, learners must weave together the best ideas from a range of perspectives. In their absence, important questions and ideas can go unexplored, key assumptions can go unchallenged, and tribalism can go unchecked, eroding the quality of research and teaching. To honor the institutions and individuals doing the complex work of improving classrooms, campuses, and scholarship, Heterodox Academy (HxA) will seek nominations for the 2020 HxA Open Inquiry Awards beginning on August 3rd, 2020.
