When Neighbors Turn on Neighbors: Lessons for Today from the Play "Our Class"

A round-table discussion hosted by the Davis Performing Arts Center, the Theater and Performance Studies Program, the Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, the Democracy and Governance and Conflict Resolution Programs, and the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies (CERES) .

Panelists will use the play and the events it portrays to address wider issues of violence, prejudice and atrocities, as well as the challenging question of communal and personal responsibility in a world that still suffers from the violence and hatred visited by neighbors on neighbors.

Derek Goldman
Professor of Theater and Performance Studies; 
Co-Founder, Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics, Georgetown University
