Conservative political analyst Ann Coulter will discuss "The Sum of Capitalism and Democracy: What Constitutes an American?" at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period, and a reception and book signing in the Clipper Room.
Coulter's speech is part of the 2003 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "The Great American Experiment: A Juxtaposition of Capitalism and Democracy," a student-run series examining how the two pillars of American society — capitalism and democracy — interact, and how their interactions affect Americans.
Coulter is one of the most visible faces of the American right. Her no-holds-barred, often eccentric style of debate has earned her a strong conservative following. Coulter writes a widely read column for Universal Press Syndicate, and is a frequent guest on political television shows. Coulter has authored three best-selling books: High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton, Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right, and, most recently, Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism. To supplement Coulter's lecture, the symposium will present the film JFK at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 19, in Schafler Auditorium in the Bloomberg Center for Physics and Astronomy.
The lecture, reception, book signing and film are free and open to the public. For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit the MSE Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/mse or send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
