Sea-Change: Symposia with the Dallas Institute Fellows and Friends

Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture

In The Tempest, William Shakespeare offers the phrase "sea change" to describe a deadly, comprehensive, beautiful, and deeply strange kind of change: a metamorphosis in which nothing has faded but the whole medium, context, and meaning have transformed. Many of our wisest have begun to suggest that we are currently undergoing such a sea-change globally, institutionally, and in our own lives. From the climate to the pandemic, from big data and AI to mental health crises and more, civil conversation offers calm in the storm. Join us to contemplate and discuss the SEA-CHANGE already happening around us.
