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
