Posted September 12, 2001; 06:44 p.m.
A panel discussion titled "What Does It Mean To Be American?" is set for 12:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, in 127 Corwin.
Speakers will reflect on the values that underlie America, the American ideals that were symbolically attacked on Sept. 11 and how these ideals will shape America's response to apparent terrorists with different cultural understandings.
Participating in the panel will be fellows in Princeton's James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions as well as interested faculty members. The fellows include: Herman Belz, professor of history at the University of Maryland-College Park; Matthew Berke, senior fellow at the Faith and Reason Institute in Washington, D.C.; Thomas D'Andrea, visiting research fellow at Cambridge University; Ken Kersch, assistant professor of political science at Lehigh University; Lawrence Mead, professor of politics at New York University; and John Mueller, economist and principal in the firm LBMC in Chevy Chase, Md. Professor Robert George, director of the James Madison Program, will moderate the session.
The discussion will be sponsored by the James Madison Program. A light lunch will be provided. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
