Video archive: 10/29/22 discussion at Bucknell University
Kickoff event for a series of discussions from various perspectives on controversial issues in American culture in relation to the U.S. Constitution.
A word on the series: The recent death of Queen Elizabeth II reminded many of the symbolic Venn diagram between culture and government. The US Constitution in many ways performs that symbolic function in America, a focus today for both unity and division, of historical memory and of social aspirations. This series seeks to shed light on the relation of the Constitution to culture in the twenty-first century, especially through the lens of recent controversial SCOTUS decisions, while helping to bring balance to the spectrum of views available on Bucknell’s campus and surrounding community. This kickoff event focuses on the Dobbs decision, due process, and the future of the abortion issue in America, from a variety of perspectives.
