Socrates New York Salon and Reception

Socrates salons include an evening reception and public panel followed by a day-long seminar the next day (8:30 am – 4:00 pm). Participants can register to attend both the reception and day-long seminar ($150) or to attend just the Friday reception ($25). 

Becoming an Inclusive Republic Seminar 

Our nation’s Founding Fathers were in a constant state of debate with each other and we will be working with some of the most famous products of that time as well as contemporary pieces that provide texture to our national conversation on societal norms, nationhood, and our obligations to each other and the world. Moreover, we will explore the context in which our founding documents were written, discuss the state of our democratic institutions, and examine our expectations for national leaders. 

Russell MuirheadModerated by Russell Muirhead, Robert Clements Associate Professor of Democracy and Politics at Dartmouth University.
