Renowned international relations scholar Stanley Hoffmann will deliver three talks in a new lecture series in honor of retired Princeton scholar Richard Ullman at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, Oct. 13-15, in Robertson Hall.
Hoffmann, the Buttenwieser University Professor at Harvard University, will present the following lectures: "Understanding the Global System" on Oct. 13 in Dodds Auditorium; "Ethics and Global Policy" on Oct. 14 in Dodds Auditorium; and "U.S. Foreign Policy, Past and Future" on Oct. 15 in 16 Robertson.
The lecture series, sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Princeton University Press, was created in honor of Ullman, Princeton's David K.E. Bruce Professor of International Affairs Emeritus. The series is designed to feature outstanding scholars of international affairs addressing topics of pressing concerns to the world community, such as national security, globalization, the international economy, human rights and environmental challenges. Each lecture series will be compiled into book form and published by Princeton University Press.
Hoffmann has taught at Harvard since 1955 and founded what is now the university's Gunzburg Center for European Studies. He teaches French intellectual and political history, American foreign policy, post-World War II European history, the sociology of war, international politics, ethics and world affairs, modern political ideologies and the development of the modern state.
