Scranton's Story, Our Nation's Story

Implementation of a public discussion series addressing Scranton and U.S. history as they relate to questions of national identity and citizenship.

“Scranton’s Story, Our Nation’s Story” explores the aspirational journey to fulfill our national ideals through the lens of Scranton, Pennsylvania, an iconic American city that has experienced many of the key elements of our nation’s experience: industrial era growth and decline, waves of immigration past and present, and Black and Indigenous experiences. Programs in a variety of scholarly and participatory formats, and across eight themes related to history, philosophy, English/literature, and religious studies, will engage a diverse group of Scrantonians in humanities-based conversations and story-sharing about founding debates, local and national identity, and our role as citizens in a democracy.
