InFocus: Intercultural Dialogue Series


 In Focus Logo.PNG

In Focus is an intercultural dialogue series where we invite you to share opinions, ideas, critiques, and social commentary. Topics range from class, race, gender, sexuality through the lens of popular culture and media representation. InFocus dialogues are usually hosted once a month and feature topics that are mirrored in popular culture and the Agnes Scott community.
