Mankiw, Zinn to Speak at Johns Hopkins in December

The Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium at The Johns Hopkins University will conclude its lecture series on American politics with two presentations: Bush administration economist Gregory Mankiw on Monday, Dec. 6, and historian Howard Zinn on Wednesday, Dec. 8. Both lectures will take place at 8 p.m. in Shriver Hall Auditorium on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The speeches are free and open to the public, will last 45 minutes, and will be followed by question-and-answer periods in the Clipper Room.

Mankiw's lecture is titled "The Economic Agenda." He was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2003 as chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers. A professor of economics at Harvard University, he has taught macroeconomics, microeconomics, and statistics. He is also the author of Macroeconomics and Principles of Economics, textbooks that have sold more than a million copies and been translated into 17 languages. Mankiw is also a researcher for the National Bureau of Economic Research and an advisor to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Congressional Budget Office. His bio is online at post.economics.harvard.edu/faculty/mankiw/bio.html.

Zinn's lecture is titled "Reinventing Peace: Making it a Reality After 9/11." A professor emeritus of political science at Boston University, Zinn is most widely known for his revolutionary work, A People's History of the United States: 1492-Present, which explains history from the perspective of the powerless and disenfranchised — a perspective often ignored in textbooks. He is regarded as an acclaimed social critic and historian. In addition to his extensive commentary, Zinn is an activist. After growing up in the immigrant slums of Brooklyn, he served in World War II and then went on to teach at the Spellman College and finally at Boston University. He has also been at the forefront of the civil rights and anti-war movements. His bio is online at www.kepplerassociates.com/speakers/zinnhoward.asp?1.
