2020 Kirschner Lecture - From D.C. to Damascus: The Architecture of Modern-Day Authoritarianism

Oct. 20

7:00–8:30 pm

Why does authoritarianism persist? How does it become rooted in the social, political, and legal fabrics of a state as well as in the imagination, emotions, and memories of civil society—and how can we disrupt it and turn the tide?

Attend the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights' annual Robert H. Kirschner, MD, Human Rights Memorial Lecture, streamed live from the Harper Memorial Library Reading Room. This deeply relevant conversation will center on the work of scholars Lisa Wedeen and Tom Ginsburg, whose writings and research seek to understand the challenges posed by authoritarian regimes around the world.
