St. Clair County Community College English and Philosophy Associate Professor Jim Soto of Port Huron will presentFriday, May 29, on the workings of democracy at an international conference at the University of Iceland.  Soto will speak at the conference, titled Workings of Democracy: Practices, Norms and Understanding, in Reykjavik, Iceland.  The title of Soto’s presentation is “From Ideals to Social Change: The Port Huron Statement and Education for Democracy.”  The Port Huron Statement, a political manifesto written by the Students for a Democratic Society in 1962, was a catalyst for the 1960s student movements in America. The student society became a national leader in protesting various issues in the 1960s, including the Vietnam War and racial segregation. The Port Huron Statement has been studied and taught by various groups over the past half-century. It focused on “participatory democracy,” and served as a call to give a voice to the masses, and the issues affecting society as a whole.  Soto also presented a part of the paper during a convention in Grand Rapids in February.  Read more about his upcoming trip at www.sc4.edu/soto.  Soto has taught at SC4 since 2010. He earned his master of science degree in philosophy from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and his bachelor in arts degree in philosophy from Reed College in Portland, Ore.
