2020 Cátedra Paulo Freire - Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Concerns

The increasing concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak have propelled many cancelations of public events in the United States, the city of Chicago, and the campus of Northwestern University. After examining ongoing developments in the spread of the coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Cátedra Paulo Freire. This decision was made in consultation with this year’s keynote speaker Henry Giroux, who lives in Canada, the advisory board of the Hispanic-Latinx Center at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, and the Office of Academic Affairs.
