The Department of Philosophy and Religion will host “Reflections on Elections,” on Wednesday, November 7, as a space to reflect on questions surrounding elections, such as:
On what grounds should people have the right to vote? Should we enfranchise everyone, including children? Can democracy persevere through, or flourish under, times of deep divides? Can voting be a crime? Should felons be allowed to vote? Can outcomes be democratically legitimate if they reflect minority rule? How do red state vs. blue state politics shape and constrain us?
The event begins on November 7 at 11:20 a.m. in the Campus Center’s Raptor Roost. All are welcome. Lunch will be served.
