Coming February 2019
This site is still under construction.
Notes on the State is a six-part podcast series produced at UVA’s Carter G. Woodson Institute for African-American and African Studies. The podcast engages with the “state” of our nation today through the history of one of its most complicated figures: Thomas Jefferson.
In addition to featuring conversations about Jefferson’s legacy, the series also engages with the future of UVa as an institution:
- how does UVa update its narratives while preserving its traditions?
- Can the University reach its highest ideals despite its greatest contradictions?
- What responsibility does UVa as an institution have to the very people that have historically been excluded?
Q1: Jefferson’s Design
