One-Day Seminar: American Exceptionalism hosted by Community School of Davidson (Davidson, NC)

October 17, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Thomas Jefferson once wrote that the Declaration of Independence was meant to be an “expression of the American mind.” This seminar examines primary sources that address the uniqueness or “exceptionalism” of the “American mind” and experience of self-government.

Participants will closely read and discuss documents that address the roots of the American mind; what about the American mind is unique; and crises that challenged Americans self-perceptions of their nation’s exceptionalism.

Registration opens at 8:30 am
