Being a Humanist in a Time of U.S.-China Conflict is the latest installment in the Dean's Dialogue Series, which invites faculty members to speak with Yale College Dean Pericles Lewis and students about contemporary and sometimes challenging topics. One of the series' goals is to model conversation as a mode of engagement.
