Summer Sessions: Dependence / Independence

Jul 1, 2019 – Jul 7, 2019

Commonwealth is a principle of sharing and co-ownership. It asks us to recognize our interdependence with each other, as individuals, as communities, as nations. Many countries celebrate their historical independence from others, yet all countries continue to be dependent on others in old and new, visible and invisible ways. Independence and dependence are intertwined.

The Fourth of July is a holiday in the United States, and for Summer Sessions as well. This week, in lieu of scheduled programming, writers connected to the program share their thoughts on the nature of dependency, either at a personal or political level. Because, in any kind of commonwealth, we cannot truly celebrate independence without, at the same time, celebrating dependence. These Declarations of Dependence will be published the week of July 4.
