Once every year, renowned Brown University Professor Wendy Schiller comes to NYC to present a new lecture – and last week's was one of her very best. The title was IS THE AMERICAN DREAM STILL ALIVE?, and obviously it was quite timely! The America of 2017 reflects significant changes in the underlying fabric of our society, with changes in the composition of our population, our attitudes and our national social structure. In the last 100 years we have seen period of great social and political change, from the women's suffrage movement to the labor movement to civil rights. We are in the midst of another period of political and social transition, with a brand new President cut from a very different mold then his most recent predecessors. This class will take on the difficult questions: What does America stand for? Is the American Dream still alive?
