Spring Seminar: A House Divided

The United States is a nation divided along countless lines — political, economic, racial, technological, generational, and more. Among many people — but certainly not all — there is confusion, pain, anger, fear, and (all too commonly) despair.

This lecture series explores two dynamics. First, how did America and Americans reach this point? Second, can we plausibly move forward in a constructive manner? The future is uncertain, but it can be shaped by each of us in distinct ways. We must own our national imperfections and commit – together — to the hard work of building a more inclusive, more democratic version of the deeply- flawed, but still inspiring, American experiment in democracy. It can be done, and it must be.
