Re: Lauded Political Theorist to Speak at Hopkins

Celebrated political theorist and author Benjamin Barber, who has consulted widely with political leaders ranging from former President Bill Clinton to President Roman Herzog of Germany, will discuss the relationship between global capitalism and terrorism Wednesday, April 10, at The Johns Hopkins University as part of the 2002 Symposium on Foreign Affairs.

Barber is one of nine speakers to participate in the student-run 2002 Symposium on Foreign Affairs, "Paragon or Paradox? Capitalism in the Contemporary World," a series of lectures investigating capitalism's effect on foreign affairs. Barber's speech, "Global Capitalism: Terrorism's Cause? Terrorism's excuse? Terrorism's Remedy?" will take place at 8 p.m. in the Glass Pavilion on the Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The event is free and open to the public.

A professor at University of Maryland's School of Public Affairs, Barber consults regularly with prominent politicians and institutions like the European Parliament. Drawing from firsthand interaction with world leaders, he has written numerous books, including the best-seller "Jihad Versus McWorld," and the theory classic, "Strong Democracy." Awarded the Guggenheim, Fulbright and Social Science Research fellowships, Barber is also a frequent contributor to The New York Times, Harper's Magazine and The Atlantic Monthly.

For more information, call (410) 516-8214, visit the Foreign Affairs Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/~symposia/ or e-mail isf@jhunix.hcf.jhu.edu.

When: 8 p.m. on Wed., April 10, 2002
Where: Glass Pavilion, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore
