Citizenship 101

Prof David Thomason, Assistant Professor of Political Science, will discuss citizenship.

Who should be an American citizen?  What should the concept of American citizenship encompass?  What rights and responsibilities go along with being an American Citizen,  Jose Antonio Vargas' book, Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen, explores the economic, physical, social, and psychological elements of what being excluded from citizenship means on an individual level.  Does the United States Constitution have anything to say about citizenship?  What direction is the United States headed?  Are we the land of equal opportunity or the land of selected opportunity?  The discussion will investigate the legal, ethical, and spiritual dimensions of what it means to be an American citizen.  

Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Mabee A, Ragsdale Center
