The Institute of Governmental Studies, in association with the Center on Civility and Democratic Engagement, the Townsend Center for the Humanities, and BridgeUSA at Berkeley are pleased to announce a lecture and forum with Mark Lilla, professor of the humanities at Columbia University and one of America’s leading intellectual historians and writers on current events.

Mark Lilla’s new book, The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics, has sparked a vigorous national conversation about how liberals need to articulate a new vision centered around ideas of common citizenship in order to counteract the destructive individualisms of both right and left that are hollowing out our political life. Professor Emerita Arlie Hochschild will introduce Prof. Lilla, and co-moderate a discussion following Prof. Lilla’s lecture.
