Event Description

This event is part of the James Clarke Chace Memorial Speaker Series, co-sponsored by the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program and Foreign Affairs.

The Founding Fathers tried to protect us from the threat they knew, the tyranny that overcame ancient democracy. Today, our political order faces new threats, not unlike those faced by the Europeans of the 20th century, who saw democracy yield to fascism, Nazism, or communism.  Can we learn from their experience?

Timothy Snyder is the Richard C. Levin Professor of History at Yale University and a permanent fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna.

Inexorable Changes in U.S. Foreign Policy?
