The State of the Liberal Project
Virtual event via Zoom
Join us for a presentation by Peter Boettke of George Mason University, who will discuss the current state of the liberal project and what might be done to improve it. His remarks will draw on his most-recent book, The Struggle for a Better World, 2021.
The event will start promptly at 7:00 and will begin with a moderated panel discussion, which will be followed by a Q&A session. It is part of the H.F. Langeberg Memorial Speaker Series, which is proud to be partnering with colleagues from several universities around the country.
Audience members will be able to submit questions during the panel discussion via the chat feature in Zoom.
Open discussion and audience participation are hallmarks of the Langenberg Speaker Series, so the Q&A session will make up a significant part of the program, which will end at 8:30.
