Kristol to discuss ‘Politics In the Age of Trump’ March 28
William Kristol, founder and editor at large of The Weekly Standard, will discuss “American Politics In the Age of Trump” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, in Kimmel Theatre. The lecture, part of Cornell College’s Roe Howard Freedom Lecture series, is free and open to the public.
Kristol appears frequently on leading political commentary shows. Before starting the Weekly Standard in 1995, Kristol led the Project for the Republican Future, where he helped shape the strategy that produced the 1994 Republican congressional victory. Before that, he filled senior roles within the Reagan and Bush Administrations, and taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University.
This is the seventh in the Roe Howard Freedom Lecture Series, after Gary Becker, David Weddle, Amity Shlaes, Mark Steyn, Dinesh D’Souza, and Richard Thaler. Roe Howard was a Mount Vernon native, 1917 Cornell graduate, and recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross in World War I. He was killed in action in France in 1918.
Public parking is available along First Street, in guest parking behind the Thomas Commons, and in the Multi-Sport Center lot. Kimmel Theatre is handicap accessible. Handicap seating is available but, depending on attendance, may not be paired with non-handicap seats.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. All tickets are general admission.
