NEH Summer Seminar on Tocqueville

Come study the world's greatest book on democracy at the institution founded by America's greatest democratic thinker. Over two mid-summer weeks on the iconic grounds of Thomas Jefferson's University of Virginia, 16 NEH Summer Scholars will explore American democracy with Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America as guide, with two leading experts on Tocqueville and his thought: Arthur Goldhammer (Harvard) and Olivier Zunz (University of Virginia).

The NEH Tocqueville seminar sounds like a very nice opportunity for you, Mr. Goldhammer, and for your colleague Mr. Zunz and the lucky attendees. I would love to be there but will be tied up with other commitments then. Please consider including my recent book on "Tocqueville and Democracy in the Internet Age" among your suggested readings: (Open Humanities Press: http://www.openhumanitiespress.org/books/titles/tocqueville-and-democracy-in-the-internet-age/). Tocqueville's guidance is more valuable than ever in the ideologically polarized Internet age is my twitter-sized thesis. C. Jon Delogu, PR, Univ. Lyon 3.
