Back by popular demand, a third iteration of the faculty panel Why I Changed My Mind featuring HLS faculty members’ stories of professional moments of reckoning when ideas they had previously thought settled in their worldview changed. Though (ideally) academia is a place where revising one’s ideas is a constant, in reality getting something ‘wrong’ (for students and professors) can be scary. In the current cultural climate it often feels that there is less and less room for the idea that one’s ideas can (and should!) evolve over time as new arguments, information and data emerge.  Faculty speakers will demonstrate this process in action as they share their stories on a panel moderated by Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of International Law. Featuring Janet Halley, Eli Goldston Professor of Law, Juliette Kayyem, Robert & Renee Belfer Sr Lecturer,  Faculty chair of the Homeland Security (HKS), Ruth Okediji, Jeremiah Smith Jr. Professor of Law.

Lunch will be served.
