SNF Paideia Retreat

Walk Around Philly Sticker under bridge

SNF Paideia Fellows and campus partners “Walk Around Philadelphia” together.

Ten small groups of Penn students, faculty, and staff will walk the perimeter of the city, each taking a different portion so as to cover the entire perimeter of the city of Philadelphia. As they walk they will engage in reflective dialogue with themselves, each other, and the city, gaining a more nuanced understanding of the diverse landscape, history, terrain, and place that is Philadelphia.

Through this unconventional tour of the city’s boundary, “Walk Around Philadelphia” aims to create a sense of place, a sense of belonging, and a sense of accomplishment. Participants may encounter a wide range of experiences prompting change and transformation along the way.

See details here.

The Walk Around Philadelphia experiential components are open to SNF Paideia Fellows and invited campus partners. Members of the wider Penn community are welcome to join us Saturday, August 28, for storytelling and reflection.

Registration is now closed. If you have any questions, please contact SNF Paideia by email at info@snfpaideia.upenn.edu

Polarization and the Media in American Politics: A Conversation with Michael Smerconish

Polarization and the Media in American Politics: A Conversation with Michael Smerconish Michael Smerconish is one of the nation’s most visible media personalities, with a daily radio show on Sirius/XM and a Saturday CNN show. He also provides analysis on CNN for big events, writes columns and books, and more. Maybe most uniquely: Michael is one of the few voices in the media who can’t be pigeonholed ideologically. He’ll be fielding questions on what it’s like to be somewhere in the center in our increasingly ideological media, how the media shapes our politics, what we can do to build a media that better serves the public, and whether prominent figures should be blacklisted from the media if they can’t tell the truth. We’ll also cover the state of politics and whether our two party system is capable of representing Americans like him in 2023. Michael will also field questions from the audience.Learn More
