As part of the Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar lecture series, Professor Rodgers of Princeton University will discuss the phenomenon of "fracture", which occurred on both the political right and political left of the contemporary US, and shapes the world we live in. Fracture, Rodgers argues -- in social relations, partisan politics, growing economic inequalities, and culture "wars" -- began in the realm of ideas, as larger ideas of society, economy, selves, and political culture shattered into smaller, more individualistic ones. Dr. Rodgers' lecture will tell the story of how fracture happened and what it means for our present moment.
This lecture is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
