Welcome to the Sheridan Center

The schedule for conversations following the Transformative Conversations@Brown campus-wide performance by the University of Michigan’s CRLT Players is available here. The conversations will be held across campus by various groups, centers, and offices.

Come join us for a high-energy, performance that unveils the different ways we engage with and experience Brown. Through vivid sketches, re-visit your own experiences through the eyes of others and engage in transformative conversations. As a nationally renowned touring theatre company housed in the University of Michigan’s Center for Research on Learning & Teaching, the Players use a variety of performance modes and facilitation strategies to spark dialogue, promote inclusivity, and effect positive change. Please RSVP if you would like to attend.

Start Talking explores productive ways to engage difficult dialogues in classroom and other academic settings. It presents strategies for engaging controversial topics in the classroom and is intended as a conversation-starter and field manual for professors and teachers who want to strengthen their teaching and engage their students more effectively in conversations about the most important issues of our time.
