Jason O. Hoppe, West Point Military Academy professor of English and Philosophy, leads this reading and discussion group on a topic important to all Americans. What does it mean to be an American in the 21st century? What does a model American do, and what responsibilities do Americans have to their communities and each other? How have the answers to these questions changed over the history of the United States? The participants in the reading and discussion program “American Politics and Community Today” will engage with these questions and others regarding politics and the current state of civic thought, feeling, and participation.
This series, part of the NEH funded “Democracy in Dialogue,” was created by The University of Chicago’s Ken Warren.
