About the Event

About this class:

This is a 3-week virtual class using the Zoom platform.

Mondays: February 20, 27, and March 6 - 7-8:30 pm CST

Some of the classic texts that will inform our class conversations are The Republic by Plato, Utopia by Thomas More and After Utopia by Judith Shklar. The driving question is how do we create a shared reality rooted, but not mired, in the messiness of human nature? We will end the course by writing a contemporary interpretation of Federalist 51.

Instructor bio:

Serge Danielson-Francois is an educator at Academy of the Sacred Heart in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

Humanities North Dakota classes and events are funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.


Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota. However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
