One-Day Seminar: Federalists vs. Antifederalists, hosted by Arizona Department of Education (Phoenix, AZ)

April 3, 2018, 8:00 am to August 5, 2018, 3:00 pm

The Federalist-Antifederalist debates raged from 1787-1788, as the Constitution was considered for ratification, and eventually adopted in by the requisite number of states in 1788. The debates themselves, and the issues and positions staked out, are far larger in scope and meaningful to the modern student of American history and politics than might seem at first glance. Learn about why the Antifederalists feared a strong central government, extensive powers of taxation by a distant Congress, and were distrustful of any…

April 4, 2018, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

James Madison and Alexander Hamilton were allies as authors of the Federalist Papers, and yet their views on how the new government should function and what it should do grew increasingly different, and opposed, as time passed.

Moments of Crisis: Watergate

April 7, 2018, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

The break-in at the Watergate before the 1972 presidential election was relatively small news at the time; however, keen investigative journalism and a voice from within the Nixon administration eventually led to the downfall and first resignation of an American president. Astonishing in its brazenness, the work of the Plumbers and involvement of the White House dramatically changed how Americans viewed presidential character and the relationship between the press and politicians, ushering in an era of increased partisanship and distrust.…

This seminar is designed to analyze the main arguments set forth in print during the crucial years of 1787-1788 concerning the adoption of the newly proposed Constitution of the United States. Through a close reading of the primary source material we will attempt to identify the most important principles that animated the participants in the discussion, including the fundamental assumptions therein about the political order and human nature.

Moments of Crisis: Iranian Hostage Crisis

May 12, 2018, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm

On 4 November 1979, Iranian revolutionaries broke into the American embassy in Tehran and took hostage 52 American diplomats and citizens, beginning what would be 444 days of captivity that would tarnish, and perhaps help bring down, President Jimmy Carter. The longest hostage crisis in history, it included far-reaching diplomatic negotiations and a failed military operation that left eight U.S. service members dead and several others injured, and Carter taking full blame for the fiasco.
