“Why Does Our Complex Humanity Matter?” Presentation

February 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

Free
Vermont Humanities presents constitutional law and political theory teacher Meg Mott in the third of three discussions as part of their Vermont Civics Collaborative.

In the 21st century there is less talk about human complexity and more emphasis on systemic oppression. Critics of identity politics point to the reduction of human beings to a single category of race or ethnicity. Proponents claim that identity politics undermines white hegemony, allowing more dignity for marginalized groups.  Mott will consider the advantages and disadvantages of highlighting group identity in electoral politics and ask if there still a place for eloquence and wit in our political strategies.

The Zoom presentation will take place on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. and is free, but requires advance registration here.
