Hannah Arendt Center presents

"Rights and Obligations": Public Conversation on Citizenship and Society

A Discussion Led by Roger Berkowitz Based Upon Hunger of Memory by Richard Rodriguez

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Join us for an active-learning program of community conversation that uses Richard Rodriguez's autobiography Hunger of Memory as a jumping-off point for discussion.

"I became a man by becoming a public man."
—Richard Rodriguez

The evening's discussion will address the tensions between cultural identity and U.S. citizenship, the responsibilities inherent in citizenship, and what it means to live a "public life."

Free copies of Hunger of Memory are available but supplies are limited. E-mail arendt@bard.edu for your copy.

Made possible by the New York Council for the Humanities
