    Special Event: The Warren and Anita Manshel Lecture in American Foreign Policy

    4:00pm to 6:00pm

    Location: 

    Loeb House, 17 Quincy St, Cambridge, MA 02138

    The Warren and Anita Manshel Lecture in American Foreign Policy was established at the Center for International Affairs in 1993 by members of the Manshel family and by many of their friends. It stands as a memorial to the Manshels’ longstanding commitment to public affairs and their desire to advance greater understanding of the international relations of the United States. The lecture series honors Warren Manshel’s role as a founder of both The Public Interest and Foreign Policy, his service as ambassador to Denmark, and his deep involvement over many years in the work of the Center. It also serves to recognize Anita Manshel as Warren’s full partner and enthusiastic supporter in these endeavors, which he so often acknowledged.

    “Trumpism in American Foreign Policy”
    4:00–6:00pm

    Speaker:

    Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University.

    Convener:

    Michèle Lamont, Director, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs. Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies; Professor of Sociology and of African and African American Studies, Departments of Sociology and African and African American Studies, Harvard University.
