Histories of Democracy – A Two-Part Conversation Series
October 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Amid concerns that democracy may be in danger in the U.S. and around the world, the Lepage Center takes a step back to examine the origins of democracy, its applications, where it has delivered on its promises, and where it has fallen short. As Americans prepare to vote in consequential midterm elections, this two-part event series will reveal how ideas about democracy and participation have changed over time, how perspectives on democracy are more nuanced and complex than we may believe, and where this leaves us today.
