Center for Media, Communication & Global Change

Kicking off a series of spring lectures and discussions hosted by the Center for Media, Communication, and Global Change (MCGC), on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, the center invited three leading thinkers on contemporary democracy – Charles Taylor, Dilip Gaonkar and Craig Calhoun – to participate in a hybrid event discussing their recent book publication: Degenerations of Democracy (Harvard University Press, 2022). The event featured commentaries by Ilaria Cozzaglio (Göethe  Institute, Frankfurt), and AUP Professors Julian Culp and Stephen Sawyer. Center Director Jayson Harsin moderated the event. The event was cohosted with AUP’s Center for Critical Democracy Studies (CCDS).
