Hannah Arendt Center presents
In the United States of America, there has long been an assumption that we had an answer to Arendt's question. We fight for freedom and democracy. We fight for equality and difference. Above all we fight for "a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
Not only in America, but around the world, we confront a weakening of such political visions. In America, the ideals of freedom, equality, and a common destiny that have are in decline. On both the left and the right there is fear the country has lost its way. To explore the future of an American idea, we will sponsor "The Unmaking of Americans: Are There Still American Values Worth Fighting For?"
Admission is complimentary for Hannah Arendt Center members, Bard College faculty and staff, and students. Regular admission for the two-day conference is $20 per person.
