INCITEment Series

Incitement is defined as the act of "moving to action or urging on."

As individuals researching and working during a period of strident anti-intellectual and anti-scientific sentiment, INCITE strives to stimulate conversation among university community members and the broader public surrounding issues requiring the resources and expertise of citizens, academics and activists. This public series invites individuals who envision a way forward and can speak to the opportunities that are both seized and missed in our society today.

For those who believe they have an event or opportunity that aligns with this ongoing series, please contact Sam Lutzker at sal2176@columbia.edu .
