Persistent uncertainty and rapid change have exacerbated some familiar trends: among them, the tiresome melodrama of cable news and the all-too-frequent insipidity of social media feeds. In this needful time, where should one turn for ambitious – even unorthodox – conversations about the shifting political and intellectual terrain of American life?
The Hauenstein Center’s Common Ground Initiative, a long-term series of free public programs launched with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is committed to substantive intellectual exchange, healthy democratic discourse, and principled pluralism, as progressives and conservatives alike explore and redefine their traditions at a disruptive moment. This presentation will explore the relationship of the Common Ground Initiative to the broader mission of the Hauenstein Center: building a community of ethical, effective leaders for the twenty-first century.
