Heather K. Gerken: Federalism in the Twenty-First Century - LIB 100/201 APPROVED!

Date and Time

Tuesday, September 18, 2018
7:00 p.m.


  • DeVos Center » 122E - Loosemore Auditorium


Given the acrimonious character of national politics in our time, it is tempting to think that Americans can best live peacefully with one another through a system of geographical siloes: red and blue enclaves that interact with one another as little as possible. However, such an arrangement is incompatible with our democratic commitments and our tightly integrated systems of commerce and technology. How, then, shall we live together?


In a highly polarized environment, inevitable collisions might yield key insights for how the American people can address their differences productively. Heather K. Gerken, Dean of Yale Law School, will share her insights on achieving common ground in the twenty-first century.
