Danielle Allen, Harvard University’s James Bryant Conant University Professor, is the guest speaker for the launching of the new Democracy Laboratory at the University of Wyoming.
Allen’s American democracy talk will be presented through Zoom at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, as part of the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research’s guest speaker series. Allen is the author of “Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality.”

The Democracy Lab is a new project from the Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research and is funded, in part, by UW’s Grand Challenges initiative. The lab seeks to empower students, faculty and the public using interdisciplinary methods drawn from diverse disciplines -- such as anthropology, art, cultural studies, geography, history, literature, philosophy and political science -- to help connect communities and to strengthen the quality of democracy.
Allen is a political theorist who has published broadly in democratic theory, political sociology and the history of political thought. She is the recipient of the 2020 John W. Kluge Prize for Achievement in the Study of Humanity, an award administered by the Library of Congress that recognizes work in disciplines not covered by the Nobel Prizes.
