This is an Archive of a Past Event

Join global journalist Fareed Zakaria for “America in a New World” on Tuesday, May 10, at 7 pm in Cemex Auditorium.

Zakaria's address will explore the role of the United States in a world of increasing turmoil. Should America be acting as the global “moral police?” When is our nation is responsible for stopping genocide, fighting poverty, and addressing other pressing issues we face as a country “with a conscience?” And how do we balance our domestic concerns with those of the world in a time of limited resources? His half-hour talk is followed by a question-and-answer period with the audience.

Zakaria has been called “the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation” (Esquire). He is the Emmy-nominated host of CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, a contributing editor for "The Atlantic," a columnist for "The Washington Post," and the bestselling author of The Post-American World, The Future of Freedom, and In Defense of a Liberal Education.
