Book Launch & Reception: What Should We Do? A Theory of Civic Life

Wednesday, November 30 | 6:00 PM ET | Austin Conference Room, Tisch Library (Medford campus)

Join the Political Science Department and Tisch College for a book launch event for "What Should We Do? A Theory of Civic Life" by Peter Levine, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and Lincoln Filene Professor of Citizenship & Public Affairs at Tisch College. People who want to improve the world must ask the fundamental civic question: "What should we do?" Although the specific issues and challenges people face are enormously diverse, they often encounter problems of collective action (how to get many individuals to act in concert), of discourse (how to talk and think productively about contentious matters), and of exclusion. In his recent book, Levine, one of America's leading scholars and practitioners of civic engagement, identifies the challenges that confront people who ask the citizens' questions and explores solutions.
