Education for Citizenship Series
Responsible Freedom: Liberal Arts Education and the College Idea

Martha Nussbaum and Andrew Delbanco with Debra Satz

Thursday, March 5, 2009 | 7:30 – 9:00pm | Kresge Auditorium | Free and Open to All

Universities eloquently proclaim the advantages of education for creating responsible citizens, but their rhetoric is often better than the outcome. All too often, little attention is paid to what education is for and what it should consist of. What should today's students know in preparation for common citizenship in a pluralistic world? What is the role of the humanities in that preparation? Join us for a conversation with two leading public intellectuals about the role of liberal education in promoting civic virtue, as well as about its uncertain future in a complex and technologically demanding world.
