Description

The Irving Howe Memorial Lecture

We have lived through a global liberal revolution—from the defeat of fascism and the rise of NATO, through the overthrow of dictatorships in 1989 and the Arab Spring. Now, argues Paul Berman, we have entered the age of counterrevolution. A critic-at-large for Tablet magazine, Berman will address the current crisis of the liberal world order, drawing upon ideas from his book Terror and Liberalism (“one of the most challenging accounts of the post-9/11 world”—The New York Times). He has written for The New Republic, The New Yorker, and Slate. Renowned author and political theorist Michael Walzer will introduce the lecture. 
 
Presented with the Center for the Humanities.
