The next Philosophers’ Café, “Road Trip! Finding Democracy and the American Dream on the Road,” will be taking place on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 7 p.m. at St. Brendan’s Inn in Green Bay. Associate Prof. Eric Morgan (Democracy and Justice Studies) will be acting as the moderator. The event is always free and open to the public.
About this Philosophers’ Café: “Throughout the nation’s history Americans have always loved to be on the move, embracing a pioneering spirit that is embedded deep within the country’s democratic ideals of opportunity and expansion, of dreams and reinvention. With the widespread availability of cars and the establishment of a vast highway system by the mid-20th century, many Americans had more opportunities than ever before to explore their nation and to reinvent themselves, taking untraveled roads to seek out their own American dreams. Why has the road mattered so much to Americans as they have sought to find and define themselves amidst eras of expansion, depression, war, turbulence and peace? Bring along your favorite road trip novel, film, song or, best of all, personal road trip memory.”
