About the event

What is conservatism, and why does it so often seem so un-conservative, so radical and nontraditional? From the reaction against the French Revolution to the intransigence of today's Republican Party, what do conservatives thinkers have in common? Join Christopher Hayes, Editor at Large of The Nation and Professor Corey Robin (Political Science, Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center) for a public conversation about the past, present, and future of the conservative movement, from Edmund Burke to the Tea Party.
