The Myth of Rugged American Individualism and
How It's Harming All of Us

The version of rugged American individualism we learned in school is a myth. People have always relied on one another for help at different times and in different ways. We need others not only to survive but to flourish. Dispelling this myth is more important than ever in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic where rugged individualism and claims of autonomy sometimes seem untethered from a recognition of responsibilities.  Professor Wasson will examine harms stemming from this myth and potential ways to address.
