Fragility of Citizenship
What does it mean to be a citizen of these United States? Not the same question: what does United States citizenship mean? The understanding of those words—what defines them, who is entitled to the status, what threatens them, how meaningful they are to civil society—are questions as infrequently considered as their answers are important.

These questions will be asked and answered by two accomplished and acclaimed authors, two public intellectuals who have put copious time and thought into what it means to be a citizen, particularly in the United States, whether American citizenship faces a dubious future, and how that possibility can be short-circuited. The hour-long conversation will provide an unvarnished look into how tenuous “citizenship” has been as a force and status throughout history, its use and abuse in the dynamics of America’s current cultural turmoil, its centrality to the American experiment and to the reality of American exceptionalism, whether citizenship is in need of saving, and, if so, how that might be accomplished.
