IWORD Democracy Workshop 2023

  • September 30, 2023

General Information:

IWORD is a small interdisciplinary workshop on reimagining democracy. And we mean this very broadly. The idea is to start from scratch, to pretend we’re forming a new country and don’t have any precedent to deal with. And that we don’t have any unique interests to perturb our thinking. The modern representative democracy was the best form of government mid-eighteenth century politicians technology could invent. The twenty-first century is a very different place technically, scientifically, and philosophically. What could democracy look like if it were reinvented today? Would it even be democracy—what comes after democracy?…
