Join us April 19th at noon for a wide-ranging discussion on politics and globalization with this year’s Kenan Distinguished Lecturer in Ethics, Michael Ignatieff. Dr. Michael Ignatieff is a Canadian scholar, author, television and radio broadcaster, and former leader of Canada’s Liberal Party (2008-2011). Dr. Ignatieff has published on subjects such as the English penal system, the human need for community, modern warfare, and human rights. His more recent work has also addressed the ethics of waging wars against terrorism. In addition to his non-fiction work, Ignatieff wrote a television play, Dialogue in the Dark, and his second novel Scar Tissue (1993) was short-listed for both the Booker Prize for Fiction and the Whitbread Novel Award. He currently holds joint appointments at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, and is also the Chair for the Carnegie Council Centennial Project, “Ethics for a Connected World,” meant to stimulate current and future generations to consider the role of ethics in an increasingly interconnected world.
