Event Details

Led by Dr. Matt Meyer, The University of Scranton, Professor of Philosophy 

The discussion group will involve excerpted readings of the book, “Freedom: An Unruly History,” by scholar Annelien de Dijn. The discussion will explore the American founding’s idea of freedom and how freedom intersects with issues of equality, liberty and citizenship in ways that are relevant for us today – from matters of race relations, immigration, and women’s rights to health care, Covid-19, and more.

This hybrid event will take place both in-person in the Henkelman Room at the Scranton Public Library and via Zoom.
