Description (no more than 300 words)

This panel discussion will invite reflection on the unique challenges and opportunities that study away brings to understanding, developing, and questioning our identities. The inspiration for this event is the experience of Ta-Nehisi Coates, who in Between the World and Me (PLU's Common Reading book this year), describes how living in Paris altered his sense of identity as an American and as a person of color.
