The St. Olaf College Institute for Freedom and Community will host a conversation with English and Comparative Literature Professor at Columbia University James Shapiro.
“Shakespeare in a Divided America” is part of the Fall 2020 series: The Presidential Election and a Nation in Crisis: Polarization, Pandemic, Prejudice.
The Institute for Freedom & Community encourages free inquiry and meaningful debate of important political and social issues. By exploring diverse ideas about politics, markets, and society, The Institute aims to challenge presuppositions, question easy answers, and foster constructive dialogue among those with differing values and contending points of view. Established at St. Olaf College in 2014, The Institute offers a distinctive opportunity to cultivate civil discourse within a liberal arts setting.
