April 9
Reminder Message to Undergraduate Students about Thursday lunch

Good Morning Everyone,

Don't forget to drop in on today's Thursday Lunch.

Carl Caldwell (history), Kirsten Ostherr (English), and Luján Stasevicius (CLIC) will kick off a discussion about the challenges that the pandemic poses for the maintenance and articulation of democratic values (and for effective governance and leadership more generally).

We'll use Ian Beacock’s “Germany Get’s It” as a jumping off point for the conversation. Beacock is of the mind that the rhetoric we're drawn to in response to the current crisis speaks to the state and potential of our democratic ideas.

I look forward to hearing what you think of the essay, and also to hearing your responses to  the questions posed by Professors Caldwell, Ostherr, and Stasevicius.

Here’s the Zoom link for today's event  (April 9 at 12:00 p.m.) but please also sign up here (because having a sense of the number of participants will help us to organize discussion).

Bring a friend!

Take care,

Alex Byrd
