Frontiers of Democracy 2013: Innovations in Civic Practice, Theory, and Education, July 18-20 at Tufts in Medford, MA

The Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, the Democracy Imperative, and the Deliberative Democracy Consortium bring you “Frontiers of Democracy: Innovations in Civic Practice, Theory, and Education,” an interactive gathering on civic studies and civic work that follows the Summer Institute of Civic Studies at Tufts.

After concurrent meetings arranged by the Center for Engaged Democracy and National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation during the day of July 18, “Frontiers” will turn to interactive learning exchanges, concurrent academic sessions, “short takes” (10-minute rehearsed talks by invited speakers), and meals and other opportunities to talk with scholars and practitioners from many countries who are interested in public engagement, deliberative and participatory democracy, collaborative governance, educating for democracy and civic learning, public work, building social capital, strengthening democracy, and related themes.

A registration form and more information are here. You can also consult a draft agenda for 2013’s conference and videos of “short takes” from the 2012 meeting.
