The History Town Hall functions as a way for faculty and students to give historical context to current events. Each Town Hall allows for an in-depth conversation with faculty and student speakers who bring their own perspectives, research and expertise.

Suggestions for future town hall topics can be submitted to historydus@duke.edu.
