Join us Thursday, June 27, at Old Lyme Country Club (4o McCurdy Road, Old Lyme) for a presentation by Peter Rutland titled, “Brexit: Why did it happen, and what comes next?” A reception begins at 5:30 p.m., with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m.
Rutland is the Colin and Nancy Campbell Professor in Global Issues and Democratic Thought, and Professor of Government at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT.
The Brexit referendum has triggered a constitutional crisis with profound implications for Britain’s political and economic future. It exposed deep flaws in the country’s political system and social identity. Why did the crisis happen, and what does the future hold? Peter Rutland was a visiting professor at Manchester University in 2016 and witnessed the referendum first hand.
More information TBD.
Join us Tuesday, September 17, 2019, in the Crozier Student Center at Connecticut College for a presentation by Gordon Chang.
Chang last spoke at SECWC in June 2017, where his well-received presentation at Old Lyme Middle School was titled, “Trump and North Korea: War or Peace in Asia.”
Title and details TBD for his September 2019 return.
Online registration for the event and dinner will be available in late summer 2019.
