Colloquium Presents: "Undue Costs: The Pathologizing of Dependence in George H. W. Bush's 1990 Civil Rights Rhetoric"

My talk will offer a rhetorical explanation of what might otherwise seem like a striking contradiction within George H. W. Bush's legislative record as president:  the fact that he both passed and vetoed two separate pieces of major federal civil rights legislation in 1990.  The public rhetoric surrounding both actions reveals consistency within Bush's discourse and, more specifically, the ways in which his stated desire to use federal law to increase independence also repeatedly pathologized the idea of dependence among the American people.  Although the ideographic nature of the term "independence" is well documented, this paper will raise new questions about the implications of such discourse for normative definitions of "dependence," a term that can be used to sanction worrisome economic, racialized and biomedical distinctions within political community

The central question to be addressed is: "What should be the role of standardized state testing in our schools?" This question will be discussed from various vantage points, which are previewed in this front-page story in the Centre Daily Times. The forum aims to foster discussion about the role of standardized testing in schools, in light of recent major changes to the Pennsylvania law regarding state educational assessments.

This event, co-sponsored by the Center for Democratic Deliberation, is free and open to the public.  Please consider joining us, and invite your students to participate, too!
