Book Society

Utopia3 The Program on Constitutionalism and Democracy sponsors an extracurricular book society that encourages undergraduates to study classic works of political theory in a close-knit setting. We usually meet for dinner on a weekday evening during the semester. Dinner and copies of the texts are provided for students who can make the intellectual commitment. Please contact Professor Danielle Charette at for more information.
