Loyalty: Virtue or Vice?
In anticipation of the next conversation in our Education for Citizenship series, we urge you to read Glenn Loury's "The Call of the Tribe" in the December 2008 Boston Review. Professor Loury will be in conversation with Richard Ford of the Law School who discusses his latest book, The Race Card, on FORA.tv.  Eamonn Callan will moderate this conversation at Kresge Auditorium on January 21.  We look forward to seeing you there.


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?
