To prepare for our trip, especially for our low-tech group presentations and to help us focus our thoughts, our leaders have advised advanced readings. You’ll see below that readings are arranged by group number. Please read the articles for the group(s) you would most like to join and come to Asilomar prepared to answer your group’s topical question.
If you have a preference on which group you would like to join, please complete the form at the bottom of the page. Your traveling partner will not automatically be placed in your group, so make sure they complete the form if they have a preference, too. If you have no preference, or do not complete the form, Alumni Relations will assign you a group on January 16.
This is meant to be an informative and easy way to introduce you to our weekend together.
Group 1: How do US residents respond when faced with issues of public health abroad? How do US residents respond to a national health crisis?

Group 2: How does global inequality affect US residents?
Group 3: How has climate change affected me/members in our working group?
Group 4: How has war and the recent refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East changed the way we view our own nation?
Group 5: How does the US public respond to the grievances aired by social movements? Under what conditions is social protest seen as legitimate?
Group 6: How do social movements strengthen (or weaken) democratic politics?
If you have a preference on which group you would like to join, please complete the following form by January 15. Any questions can be directed to Sarah Forster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
