In its 18th annual public humanities symposium, the Theodore Roosevelt Center explores the idea of “freedom struggles.” These struggles are older than the nation itself, and Theodore Roosevelt, in words and in action, found himself on every side of the issue. That, in itself, is unremarkable—many Americans were of divided minds on questions of immigration, African American rights, women’s rights, the exclusion of Asians from the polity, and questions about the fate of Native American peoples. This Symposium aims to step into a still-difficult topic: what does freedom mean and who gets to define it?
The symposium begins on Thursday evening between 6 and 7 p.m. Mountain Time and concludes on Saturday evening at 4 p.m.
