Considered one of America’s great minds of the 19th century, Thoreau was an essayist, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, and outspoken tax resister. Fisher Reads faculty from economics, political science, philosophy, ethics, and religion offer short presentations within their respective disciplines that attempt to answer the question: Two hundred years later, is Thoreau still relevant? 

The Fisher Reads series is sponsored by the Department of Economics, Ethics Minor Program, Lavery Library, Department of Philosophy, Department of Religious Studies, Visual and Performing Arts Program, and Fisher Reads, a group of faculty members who promote reading on campus.
