In some instances, nation and home aren’t used interchangeabley. In some, though, they are. In what circumstance, if any, would we identify a nation as “home?” And if we do, are we acknowledging commonalities and diversity of the nationhood? The relationship between diversity and nationhood is particularly relevant in New Jersey. Concepts of identity, self-governance, and how that impacts us as a family member, neighbor and citizen will be explored in this PSP session.
