Bringing History to Life: Creating the U.S. Constitution

February 13, 2019

David A. Moss, author of "Democracy: A Case Study" and the Paul Whiton Cherington Professor at the Harvard Business School, makes history come alive with an audience-driven discussion on how our republic — and democracy as we know it — came about during a lecture at 5-7 p.m. Mountain time Thursday, Feb. 28, in the Idaho State Capitol.

By stepping into the shoes of our predecessors — and facing the decisions they faced — audience members will see both the past and the present in a whole new light.

Attendees are invited to bring ideas and leave preconceptions at the door. It will be an evening that challenges the way people think about America's civic life.

Visit the event page to RSVP and access reading materials prior to the event. The event is free and open to the public and hosted by the University of Idaho McClure Center for Public Policy Research and the University of Idaho College of Law.
