Education for Citizenship Series:
Loyalty: Virtue or Vice?

Richard T. Ford and Glenn Loury with Eamonn Callan

Wednesday, January 21, 2009 | 7:30 – 9:00pm | Kresge Auditorium | Free and Open to All

This conversation concerns loyalty and the limits to which it might be subject when viewed in particular historical, social, and political contexts. What roles does loyalty play in forming personal and social identities? What are the connections between loyalty, patriotism, and pride? Under what conditions can loyalty be a vice and disloyalty a virtue? Is there greater agreement that disloyalty is a vice than that loyalty is a virtue? With class and racial inequalities remaining deeply embedded in our social, political, and economic structures, what is the place of loyalty in America today?
