Event description

Description

Frontiers of Democracy is an annual conference hosted by the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life at Tufts University since 2009.

In 2020, the conference will take place from June 18-20 at the downtown Boston campus of Tufts University (145 Harrison Ave, Boston, Room 114). It will follow the American Political Science Association’s Institute for Civically Engaged Research and precede the Summer Institute of Civic Studies, and will convene members of those two programs plus about 100 others: activists and practitioners in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors; scholars, educators, students; and more. The agenda is still in development, but will include short plenary talks, concurrent sessions, and interactive activies for the large group. Among other activities, we will experience Pre-Texts (“pedagogical cumpuncture”) and we will use several different “teaching cases” to prompt intensive discussions in small groups. (Teaching cases are short narratives about real events that conclude at a moment when the protagonists must make a difficult choice.) A major objective is to build relationships among people who work in diverse ways at the frontiers of democracy in the United States and around the world.

Tickets to this conference will be available through June 12, 2020, at 5PM.

We will honor your email request for a full refund through June 12, 2020; after this date we will be unable to refund any registrations.

Thursday, June 19, there will be an evening reception with appitizers and drinks.

We look forward to seeing you there!
