Conversations on Philosophy and Ideas - March 19th

Proximity and Politics

Date: Friday, March 19, 2021
Time: 12:00pm ET

Democracy has always been intensely physical. But in an age of social distance and social media, is it still possible to feel the power of the mass, democratic crowd as an expression of popular will? Is it still important? Join us for a conversation with Professors Richard Tuck (Harvard) and Daniela Cammack (UC Berkeley), on the importance of physical proximity in democracy, ancient and modern.

This event will take place via Zoom webinar and will be live-streamed on the CHS YouTube channel.
