Ave Maria University: After Nationalism – Being an American in an Age of Division

March 31, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

On March 31, 2022, the Politics Department at Ave Maria University hosted fellow Samuel Goldman for a talk on his recent book, After Nationalism: Being American in an Age of Division. The talk will discuss the three kinds of nationalism Americans have attempted to forge and why they never quite served the purpose for national unity. He will then talk about how Americans can live together in disagreement instead of demanding some kind of uniform definition of American citizenship.
