Democracy's Futures Seminar 3: Elections with Richard Briffault (Columbia Law), Richard Pildes (NYU Law) and Franita Tolson (USC Law)
Virtual attendance remains open. To register for virtual attendance and for readings, see the Democracy's Futures Fall 2022 website.
The Democracy's Futures seminar, co-convened by Ashraf Ahmed (Law) and Seyla Benhabib (Law) for Fall 2022, is an on-going Columbia initiative to explore and bolster democracy through engaged scholarship. From the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change, democracies face enormous structural challenges. These challenges have both exposed long-term erosion of our capacity for self-rule and opened the space for re-imagining what a robust and resilient form of popular government might look like.
We intend the seminar to be a forum for open, robust, and creative conversation both within the Columbia community and beyond. We hope participants will find the seminar a place to sharpen their ongoing scholarship and find inspiration for new and politically engaged work.
