America’s global stature Levinson Lecture focus

For some, America means equality and opportunity, for others it is an empire eroding their own societies, while others are ambivalent. Three of the world’s most provocative observers of global issues will speak on “America in the World” Nov. 7-8.

The public event features Lionel Jospin, former prime minister of France; political scientist Samuel Huntington of Harvard; and Robert D. Kaplan, journalist and author of nine books on international affairs.

Huntington will give the keynote talk at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 in Alumni Hall. Jospin and Kaplan will speak in Old Cabell Hall auditorium Nov. 8 at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., respectively, followed by a noon discussion with all three symposium participants.

Sponsored by the Center on Religion and Democracy, the program marks the inaugural Levinson Lectures on Religion, Culture, and Social Theory. (Webcast at http://religionanddemocracy.lib.virginia.edu/)
