February 7 & 8 – Liberalism and Democracy: Past, Present, Prospects (conference at the New School)

Liberal democracy is under assault as never before. Nations
around the world, including the United States, have seen
wave after wave of shocking, sometimes intolerant popular
revolts. How can avowed liberals, conservatives, socialists,
and democrats rise to this epochal challenge?

Join distinguished scholars, journalists, and policy experts
for a two-day public seminar exploring the issue. This is the second of two conferences organized by James Miller (Professor of Politics, New School for Social Research) and Helena Rosenblatt (Professor of History, CUNY Graduate Center). Sponsored by The New School in partnership with City University of New York, Graduate Center. (The first – The Many Faces of Liberalism Conference at the GC on October 2nd – was a resounding success. We are proud to announce that the keynote conversation can be found on YouTube here.)
