University of Wyoming President Ed Seidel and his partner Gabrielle Allen’s “Think and Drink” series discussion is now available on the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research’s (WIHR) YouTube channel.
Seidel and Allen discussed a vision for the land-grant university’s mission in the 21st century and how UW can meet statewide and global challenges. Their talk can be viewed here.
The WIHR will have two events this week.
The institute will collaborate with Wyoming Humanities Wednesday, Oct. 21, at 5:30 p.m. With the election coming Nov. 3, the discussion will focus on front-line stories of how freedom of thought, freedom of speech and democracy are protected in unexpected ways every day in Wyoming communities.
“Get a sneak peek at Wyoming Humanities’ ‘Democracy Under Construction’ reader, which gives us a timely reminder that all of us are the architects, builders and protectors of democracy,” says WIHR Director Scott Henkel.
Participants in the discussion are Henkel; Jamie Markus, Wyoming state librarian; Lisa Scroggins, Natrona County Library executive director; and Isabel Zumel, former Teton County Library assistant director and Wyoming Humanities board member.

University of California-Los Angeles historian Ellen Dubois will discuss her most recent book, “Suffrage: Women’s Long Battle for the Vote,” commemorating the broad sweep of the women’s suffrage movement. She will have a discussion with Cathy Connolly, a UW professor of gender and women’s studies and Wyoming state representative. UW Professor Renee Laegreid, a historian of the American West, will moderate the discussion.
