Sophia Rosenfeld, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of History, will consider three key questions for our "post-truth" moment: How, historically, have democracy and truth been connected to one another?  Why is that relationship seemingly in peril now in the U.S. and in much of the world? And what, if anything, can be done?

With the the resurgence of fascism and xenophobia in the world, scholars and pundits have declared that democracy is in crisis. However, history reveals that democracies have always existed amidst systems that thrive on inequality.
This workshop will focus on two questions:
Are certain forms of exclusion intrinsic to the practice of democracy?
How distinct is contemporary democracy’s relationship to inequality from earlier periods in history?
