About Civic Renaissance
Civic Renaissance is a publication, newsletter, and learning community dedicated to ennobling our public discourse with the wisdom of the past. CR founder and curator Alexandra Hudson is an award-winning writer whose forthcoming book on civility will be published by St. Martin’s Press.
Civic Renaissance exists to create a public forum for civility, grace, and conversation dedicated to the betterment of the human condition.
We aim to embody the intellectual humility, the zealous curiosity, and the passion for learning that is direly needed in our world today.
In our courses, Civic Renaissance explores the building blocks of human community and the conditions of human flourishing. The best of the old is revived and applied to the challenges we are facing here and now.
Civic Renaissance courses focus on civic and intellectual renewal: They explain why such renewal is needed and how we can achieve it, including by looking at examples of where it is occurring today and where it has occurred in the past.
