Citizenship Under Siege (Web Resources)
Title: Citizenship Under Siege
Author: Association of American Colleges and Universities
Abstract: Citizenship Under Siege "We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice. . ." So begins the Preamble to the US Constitution. But who is recognized as belonging to "We the People," not just legally with full rights and responsibilities, but also in terms of culture, language, and recognized identities? And if granted citizenship by law, can one fully practice it if curtailed by economic inequality or by racism? Who is entitled to be seen as an American citizen is still entangled with issues of social justice, race, religious belief, property, wealth, national origins, gender, language, and ethnicity. In an age of fractious differences about this topic when finding common ground seems elusive, The Association of American Colleges and Universities and The Democracy Commitment are joining with seven community colleges to orchestrate a series of public forums, each with accompanying programs and educational resources to bridge the rifts. Organized under the common theme, Citizenship Under Siege and supported by a grant from The National Endowment for the Humanities, the events are framed through the powerful historic, ethical, and narrative lenses of the humanities. We believe this tapestry of forums underscores how the humanities still are "the heart of the matter, the keeper of the republic—a source of national memory and civic vigor, cultural understanding and communication, individual fulfillment, and the ideals we hold in common" (American Academy of Arts & Sciences, 2013, 9).

Clashes Over Citizenship: Webinar Series on Promoting Listening, Learning, and Engagement (Web Resources)
Title: Clashes Over Citizenship: Webinar Series on Promoting Listening, Learning, and Engagement
Author: The Democracy Commitment
Author: Association of American Colleges and Universities
Abstract: Clashes Over Citizenship: Webinar Series on Promoting Listening, Learning, and Engagement The US Constitution’s preamble speaks of “We the People”—but who is considered part of that sacred circle, and how has this group varied over time? When national identity is hotly contested, what does it mean to experience citizenship as partial, denied, or fully acknowledged? How can the humanities illuminate differing narratives and open up space for understanding, connections, and shared visions of the future? The Association of American Colleges and Universities and The Democracy Commitment invite faculty, staff, students, and campus community partners to join in one or all of three FREE webinars. These events are designed to expand campus expertise on how to hold constructive conversations about contentious issues and how to institute practices in and out of the classroom that foster engagement across differences.
