We've enjoyed a prolonged visual feast. It's not as if we're stuffed — but maybe ready to move on to the next course.

Back to Bates Weekend on Saturday afternoon, Oct. 3, 3025.

Deconstructing the Declaration: What We Can Learn from the Declaration of Independence
The Common Reading for the Class of 2019 and the college community was Danielle Allen’s Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality. The goal of the Common Reading project is to inspire close reading, deep thinking, and spirited discussion about the largest-order questions of our time. In this year’s annual Faculty Symposium, three faculty members from different disciplines talk about the Declaration and how they approach this brief but definitive text from the perspectives of classics, rhetoric, and politics. They offer a view into students’ classroom experience and their own scholarship, with time for discussion and questions.

Moderator: Matthew Auer, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty

Margaret Imber, Associate Professor of Classical and Medieval Studies and Co-Director of the Faculty Commons for Learning and Teaching

Hope and History
The Declaration is a living document whose meaning unfolds over time, which presents a conundrum. Such an interpretation offers historians great difficulty. On the other hand, such an interpretation offers citizens great promise.

Charles Nero, Professor of Rhetoric

Do Black Lives Matter in the Declaration of Independence?
Whose declaration is it? How are identity and ownership defined? Who is the “equal” in equal? Can the Declaration belong to everyone?

Stephen Engel, Associate Professor and Chair of Politics

Can the Tension Between Liberty and Equality Be Resolved?
How does the Declaration inform the struggle in political systems between liberty and equality, individual and community, and our current-day understanding of individuals, society, and governance?
