NY Council for the Humanities Reading & Discussion Program Concludes Wednesday

The Democracy Commitment at MCC, having received a NY Council for the Humanities Grant, has hosted three robust discussions of Danielle Allen's book Talking With Strangers. The book focuses on historical and contemporary issues impacting social trust. The next and final discussion will take place on Wednesday, May 10th, from 12-1250pm in the R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center Forum (3-130) on the Brighton Campus. The discussion will be facilitated by Professor Robert Muhlnickel, and will focus on Chapter 10 and the Epilogue. However, since this is a concluding discussion, it will also involve a general conversation about the current status of social trust in the United States.

Copies of the book are available on reserve at both the Brighton and Damon Libraries. The event is free and open to the public. For further information, please contact the TDC at MCC co-coordinators Joseph Scanlon ( or Professor Dina Giovanelli (  RSVPs are not necessary for this event.
