Program details Spring 2016:

Topic: "Executive Power: Who Gets the Crown"
 
Date: February 15 - 19, 2016

Executive power is the authority to both execute and enforce the “rules” – whether they are laws, or orders, or decisions, or commandments.  In a government, it is the executive power that actually does the governing.  Like any other kind of power, it can be used for good or for ill.  So who exactly should wield it?  And how much is too much?

 

The Spring 2016 Connections Series will examine the executive with an eye for elucidation: Enforcer or Emblem?  Ego or Equalizer?  The week will feature a special Presidents’ Day program and a performance of Julius Caesar by the American Shakespeare Company.
