Arendt Center Hosts International Conference on American Exceptionalism
The Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College will host its seventh annual international conference in Olin Hall October 9–10. The conference, “The Unmaking of Americans,” will ask what aspirations and which dreams still animate American idealism. Americans today must confront the weakening of a collective vision of freedom and equality. Americans are dismayed at the power of money, the decay of self-governance, and a bureaucracy that seems impervious to popular control. And yet few dare to articulate a collective vision that might hold the country together. The Arendt conference brings together scholars, writers, and educators to ask, “Are there still American values worth fighting for?"
