CITIZEN YOU

What was one of your proudest moments as a Citizen?   Who has been an outstanding Citizen during your lifetime?  What does being a Citizen mean right now, to you?  How is Citizenship similar to, or different from: patriotism, political participation, lawfulness, and civic discourse?  How should we connect with our fellow Citizens?  What strengthens and what undermines Citizenship?

Optional Suggested Reading: Citizenship: A Very Short Introduction, by Richard Bellamy; Citizen: An American Lyric, by Claudia Rankine; Deeper dive: Socratic Citizenship by Dana Villa.

The Salon sessions are informed by Gross’ work at Columbia University as co-chair of the University Seminar on Innovation, and inspired by his book about the patron saint of conversation, Socrates’ Way, which has been published in 26 countries. Enjoy light refreshments and thoughtful conversation. Topics will be announced one month before the Salon.
