Ford School announces fall Citigroup Foundation Lecture Series speakers

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

The Ford School is pleased to announce that two distinguished speakers will deliver addresses this fall as part of our Citigroup Foundation Lecture Series – Paul Krugman and Senator Chuck Hagel.

On October 2, 2009, Paul Krugman will deliver a Citigroup Foundation Lecture as the keynote speaker of a Festschrift in Honor of Alan Deardorff. Krugman is a professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University, a centenary professor at the London School of Economics, and is likely best-known as an op-ed columnist for The New York Times. Krugman was recently honored for his work on global trade patterns by winning the 2008 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.

Senator Chuck Hagel will give the second fall Citigroup Foundation Lecture on October 7, 2009. Senator Hagel served two terms in the U.S. Senate (1997-2009) representing the state of Nebraska and is currently a Distinguished Professor at Georgetown University and the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Hagel recently published a book titled America: Our Next Chapter, a straightforward examination of the current state of our nation that also provides substantial proposals for the challenges of the 21st century.

This lecture series is made possible by a generous gift from the Citigroup Foundation. The Citigroup Foundation Lecture Series brings prominent policymakers from the national and international arenas to the Ford School each year to engage students and faculty in dialogue, and to give a public address.
