What Was Transcendentalism?

06:30 pm to 08:00 pm on Feb 24
Student Building

Yet some of its more provocative aspects are largely forgotten today. We’ll revisit Transcendentalism from a 21st century perspective: What can we still learn from writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Henry David Thoreau, and Christopher Cranch?
