The Country that Fiction Built
with Humanities Washington Speaker, Dr. Michelle Liu

How can fiction help us imagine building more
empathy and openness to those with experiences
different from our own? 

Dr. Michelle Liu, a Humanities Washington speaker,
will discuss this question with us.

Dr. Liu, a professor of English at the University of Washington, will delve into the many ways our country is deeply shaped by Harper Lee and Harriet Beecher Stowe. Using To Kill a Mockingbird and Uncle Tom’s Cabin,
Michelle invites participants to think about how these
two works of fiction still fundamentally shape as well as
limit how we think about skin color, morality, and
who counts as human.

AAUW Seattle is grateful to Humanities Washington for funding this public presentation. AAUW members and the general public can register for this free presentation.

AAUW Stands Against Racism

AAUW joins the country in mourning the losses of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless other people of color who have been unjustly killed across our nation. Our country needs healing. But healing will only come with justice. As an organization we condemn racism.

On behalf of our 170,000 members and supporters, we commit to fighting for justice, long-term and lasting change, and we stand in solidarity against racism.

And, as a member of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, we will work to advance the policies and systemic changes identified in the New Era of Public Safety: A Guide to Fair, Safe, and Effective Community Policing and Vision for Justice platform.
