The Political Theory Institute at American University will host a lecture by Yuval Levin, editor of National Affairs, as part of its Political Theory Colloquium Lecture Series.
“Our Fractured Republic”
Tuesday November 1st, 5:30-7 PM
McDowell Formal Lounge
Economic inequality, cultural divisions, and political polarization increasingly are increasingly pulling American political life apart. In his new book, The Fractured Republic: Renewing America’s Social Contract in the Age of Individualism, Yuval Levin, editor of National Affairs and fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, argues that both right and left are animated by the politics of nostalgia: different visions of a lost Golden Age that no longer speak to America’s reality today. Join us to hear Levin discuss the errors of the politics of nostalgia and reflect upon what a saner political path forward might look like.
Dr. Levin received his BA from American University’s School of Public Affairs and his PhD from the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.
