About the event

Join Michael Walzer, Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey for a discussion of politics and democratic internationalism. Michael Walzer delivered the first Irving Howe Memorial Lecture 20 years ago.

Irving Howe (1920-1993) graduated from City College New York in 1940 and become a founder of Democratic Socialists of America; he founded Dissent magazine and was considered one of the country's most influential literary critics until his death. This annual lecture, endowed in his honor, focuses on the subjects closest to Irving Howe’s heart, including politics, Yiddish and Jewish culture, immigrant history and the modern literary imagination.

Cosponsored by Max Palevsky.
