Americans are disinclined to see themselves as others see them, which limits what the U.S. can accomplish in international affairs. This program will explore American “exceptionalism” and the notion that only Americans have a keen insight into global problems and solutions. Our speaker will also discuss how the hyperpartisanship in America’s political landscape affects global perceptions. Be prepared for a thought-provoking evening that challenges conventional thinking and encourages ideas without borders!


Meet the Speaker: Dr. Richard Farkas has been teaching at DePaul for over 40 years. He holds an honorary degree from Corvinus University and has lectured in Russia, Poland, Hungary, and Croatia. His research compares strategies for political and economic development in post-Communist and post-conflict countries. Professor Farkas has consulted for some of the largest corporations in the U.S. and has appeared frequently on U.S. and international media.
