About this Event

Fascism encroaching on democracy -- the American populace riven with discord between ultranationalists and advocates of world responsibilities – public information warped by big lies—these current menaces echo perils of the era from the first through the second world war. Drawing from their recent books Fighting Words: The Bold American Journalists Who Brought the World Home and The Idealist: Wendell Willkie’s Wartime Quest to Build One World, Nancy Cott and Samuel Zipp will discuss internationalist ventures of a previous tumultuous era, and consider their relevance today.
