Gallatin Today: Democracy & Its Discontents

Twice a year, Gallatin produces a major print issue called Gallatin Today (GT) that is read by alumni, parents, faculty, students, and staff. GT is a snapshot of news and events from our community and also an exploration of the conversations and types of connected learning that happens at Gallatin. Each issue of GT contains contributions from alumni, faculty, and current students.

The feature story for fall 2016 is Democracy & Its Discontents, an in-depth examination of global democracy, its theory and practice. Below you will find links to several essays by Gallatin faculty members as well as other features. We hope these texts inspire thought and conversations. We'd love to hear from you; send us your feedback.
