Hollinger to speak on human rights, Sept. 20

David Hollinger, the Chancellors Professor of History at the University of California-Berkeley, will deliver a lecture on "The Missionary Past, the Human Rights Present and the Ethics of Solidarity" at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, in 101 McCormick.

Hollinger is a historian specializing in the intellectual history of the United States. Many of his books and essays have focused on tensions between cosmopolitan and provincial impulses in debates about public doctrine, higher education, ethnoracial diversity and American nationality. His "Postethnic America: Beyond Multiculturalism" offers a history and critique of multiculturalism and its antecedents.

Hollinger has been a Guggenheim Fellow, a fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and twice a member of the Institute for Advanced Study. He currently is serving as the Harmsworth Professor of American History at the University of Oxford.

Hollinger's speech is part of the James Moffett '29 Lectures in Ethics offered by the University Center for Human Values. A reception in Prospect House will follow the lecture. For more information, click here or call 258-4798.
