Description

The Irving Howe Memorial Lecture

From “Make America Great Again” to worldwide religious fundamentalism, reactionary ideology is a powerful yet underestimated force in today’s politics. As Mark Lilla explores in his timely talk, nostalgia for a lost golden age has been transformed into a potent and sometimes deadly force. Lilla, professor of humanities at Columbia University, is the author of The Shipwrecked Mind: On Political Reaction and The Stillborn God: Politics, Religion, and the Modern West, among other books.
 
Presented with the Center for the Humanities.
