Studio Conversations

Studio Conversations is a speaker series that highlights topics in history, art, and contemporary issues. These conversations are meant to engage the audience in an experience on par with what Russell himself did–convene intimate social gatherings to invoke humor; story-telling; sharing of knowledge; and lively conversation.

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
