Student Protesters, 1989

March On

Working to make a difference can mean refusing, resisting, and engaging.

This fall, Brown University Professor Bonnie Honig was on campus as the 2017 Mary Flexner Lecturer. A leading scholar of democratic, feminist, and legal theory, Honig gave powerful presentations on the politics of refusal.

Honig's presentations got us thinking about what it’s like to live during turbulent times. So in this Winter 2018 issue of the Bulletin, we’re highlighting stories about resistance, civic engagement, and how Mawrters are making a difference in the world.

Check out those articles by using the Explore Stories search on the website, and linked on this page are some similar articles and profiles from recent past issues of the magazine.
