Friends and Young Friends Event: A conference on "Preserving an Open Society in a Perilous World"

A free, open society is a prerequisite for economic prosperity, and for the advance of knowledge with all the betterment that that implies. Yet preserving freedom and openness requires security. The nature of threats, and certainly the perception of their nature and imminence, necessitate defensive measures — including “pro-active” or preemptive defensive measures — that often constrain our liberties. 

 

Please join us at 9.00 AM on March 25 for "Preserving an Open Society in a Perilous World," a conference in which we will discuss the tension between freedom and security, and the particular challenges of maintaining a balance between the two in the information age. Conference participants will include Judith Miller, Andrew McCarthy, Paul Twomey, Gabe Schoenfeld, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, and Secretary Michael Chertoff. 

 

For location details, RSVP to Eric Simpson, simpson[at]newcriterion.com, 212.247.6980. Space is limited.

Friends and Young Friends Event: Private tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Writing in the September 2013 issue of The New Criterion, the collector, gallerist, and conservator-restorer Marco Grassi said of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's revamped European painting galleries: "These changes have once again...reaffirmed the centrality of European painting in our Western culture. The new galleries, preceded as they are by that impossibly broad staircase, now truly preside as the core of Hunt's grand monument." On the morning of February 21, Marco will lead an exclusive private tour of the galleries for Friends and Young Friends of The New Criterion.

 

Space for this special event is extremely limited. For further details and to reserve your place, please contact Eric Simpson, simpson[at]newcriterion.com, (212) 247-6980.

FRIENDS AND YOUNG FRIENDS EVENT: A conference on "The Kennedy Phenomenon"

This November will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The editors of The New Criterion invite the Friends and Young Friends to a conference on November 19 from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM to discuss "The Kennedy Phenomenon." In many ways, Kennedy's assassination was a turning point in American history, igniting a cultural revolution and leading to the collapse of mid-century liberalism. Our conference aims to look at the event as a case study in public myth-making and the ways in which images and symbols can override fact and substance in political life.

 

Conference participants will include Peter Collier, Roger Kimball, James Piereson, Fred Siegel, and Ira Stoll.

 

This is a Friends and Young Friends of The New Criterion event. For location details RSVP to Eric Simpson, simpson[at]newcriterion.com or 212.247.6980
