Hannah Arendt Center presents

Failing Fast: The Educated Citizen in Crisis

Sixth Annual Fall Conference

Thursday, October 3, 2013 – Friday, October 4, 2013

[Failing Fast: The Educated Citizen in Crisis]

“Failing Fast: The Educated Citizen in Crisis” asks how we can re-invigorate the cultural and educational institutions that have nurtured public-spiritedness that is the bedrock virtue of American constitutional democracy. In an increasingly global world, do we need a common public language? Is college education necessary for engaged citizenship? Should politically involved citizens have knowledge of the arts and practical skills like building and fixing things? What, in the 21st century, is an educated citizen?

Time: 10:00 am – 6:30 pm

Location: Olin Hall
