Blair To Discuss Career, New Faith Foundation in Woolsey Talk
Tony Blair, former prime minister of Great Britain, will join Yale President Richard C. Levin for a conversation on Friday, Sept. 19, at 4:30 p.m. in Woolsey Hall, corner of Grove and College streets.
Blair is expected to reflect on his decade-long tenure as prime minister, his current efforts as special envoy in the Middle East and his new Faith Foundation, which brings him to Yale to co-teach a course this fall on “Faith and Globalization.”
The talk is open to members of the Yale community, and the University has advised faculty, students and staff how they may obtain tickets. The tickets are not transferable and a ticket and a Yale identification card will be required for entry to Woolsey.
Blair’s conversation with Levin will also be broadcast live on Yale’s cable channel 10 and will later be netcast. The seminar that Blair will co-teach at Yale with Miroslav Volf, the Henry B. Wright Professor of Theology, is sponsored by the Divinity School and the School of Management.
