What is democracy?  Are its underpinnings being eroded?  Is it being threatened?  What, if anything can we do about it?

The Minnesota Humanities Council is holding an online panel discussion Wednesday, April 21 at 1:00pm CDT called Debating Democracy, Then and Now: Reflections on a Contested Concept. (Registration information is available at the link)

Panelists include James T. KloppenbergCharles Warren Professor of History, Harvard University, and Michele M. Moody-AdamsJoseph Straus Professor of Political Philosophy and Legal Theory, Columbia University.

  The final panelist is Tadd JohnsonSenior Director of American Indian Tribal Nations Relations. University of Minnesota - and he joined us this morning to talk a little about the idea of democracy when much of federal policy has been created to deal with the "inconvenience" of Indian tribes.

  Today's Journey to Wellness in Indian Country is made possible by the University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth Campus, serving the needs of rural Minnesota and Native American communities and an emerging center of rural, American Indian and indigenous health research.
