Honors Hanauer Lecture: Are we all Cold War liberals?

April 13, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

After the United States won World War II, a new form of liberalism, simultaneously more confident and more anxious than past liberalisms, emerged. This talk will explore the history of Cold War liberalism, analyzing the ways in which its assumptions continue to shape contemporary thought.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required, just add the Zoom link to your calendar: https://washington.zoom.us/j/93934440789

The UW Honors Program is deeply grateful to be the seat of this professorship, as it connects UW students across many disciplines through curriculum and experiences that promote engaged global citizenship. Our current Hanauer Proffessor, Dr. Daniel Bessner, associate professor in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, is a highly-accomplished scholar of U.S. foreign relations. Dr. Bessner is a frequent contributor to public forums and is popular among students for his passionate engagement with a breadth of complex histories and current issues.
