In addition to ongoing regular programming, Oregon Humanities occasionally offers public lectures, panels, and reading and discussion series in communities around the state. We also work in partnership with other organizations to offer this type of programming.

Melissa V. Harris-Perry (pictured), professor of political science at Tulane University, MSNBC contributor, columnist for the Nation, and author of Barbershops, Bibles, and BET: Everyday Talk and Black Political Thought, will appear on a brown bag lunch panel with Lisa K. Bates, assistant professor in the Toulan School of Urban Studies and Planning at Portland State University, and Donna Maxey, co-creator and sponsor of the McMenamins Kennedy School’s Race Talks series, to discuss race and housing.
