[Comment] Offline: A voice from the American wilderness
“Revolution.” The Dartmouth is the daily student newspaper of one of America’s most prestigious Ivy League colleges. Its front cover of April 12, 2017, was both an exclamation and a declaration—a response to this most turbulent period in the nation’s recent political history, and a sign of resistance. “Many Dartmouth students are very politically active”, wrote Cristian Cano. But it is not only among students that revolution is being nurtured. At an inspiringly timed conference held last week—Global Health in the Era of De-Globalisation—Dartmouth academics and alumni gathered to discuss what Ambassador Daniel Benjamin called “the great unravelling.” Benjamin directs the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth.
