Robert Putnam's "Join or Die", co-sponsored by MHC, Sociology and Criminology, Political Science, and CEBS. Follow the half-century story of America's civic unraveling through the journey of legendary social scientist Robert Putnam, whose groundbreaking "Bowling Alone" research into America's decades-long decline in community connections could hold the answers to our democracy's present crisis. Flanked by influential fans and scholars as well as inspiring groups building community in neighborhoods across the country, Putnam explores three urgent civic questions: What makes democracy work? Why is American democracy in crisis? And, most importantly… What can we do about it?
A screening of the documentary Join or Die, "a film about why you should join a club — and why the fate of America depends on it." This event is hosted by the HON 251: Citizen and Self course, but is open to all MHC scholars.
