Donald Kagan to Talk About New War on Sunday
Donald Kagan, The Hillhouse Professor of Classics and History and author of the book “While America Sleeps,” will give a talk, “Reflections on the Present Crisis,” at Yale’s Battell Chapel on Sunday, November 4, at 7 p.m.
The talk is the sixth event in a weekly lecture and discussion series, “Democracy, Security and Justice: Perspectives on the American Future,” which was initiated by Yale faculty members Cynthia Farrar and John Gaddis as a response to the attacks of September 11. The series opened on October 2 with an address by former U.S. Senator and national security adviser Gary Hart. Recent guest speakers in the series include Father Bryan Hehir, head of the Harvard Divinity School, and Michael Rubin, a journalist and expert on the Middle East.
Battell Chapel is on the corner of Elm and College streets. The event is free and open to the public.
