The World Affairs Councils of America and the
Tennessee World Affairs Council Invite You to Participate in A Teleconference
Dr. Yael Tamir
Wednesday, Feb 19, 2020
1:00-1:30 p.m. CDT
Register now for WACA’s Cover to Cover conference call on Wednesday, February 19 at 1:00-1:30 PM CT, featuring Professor Yael (Yuli) Tamir, President of Shenkar College and an adjunct professor at the Blavatnik School of Government, Oxford University.
Around the world today, nationalism is back—and it’s often deeply troubling. Populist politicians exploit nationalism for authoritarian, chauvinistic, racist, and xenophobic purposes, reinforcing the view that it is fundamentally reactionary and antidemocratic. But Yael (Yuli) Tamir makes a passionate argument for a very different kind of nationalism—one that revives its participatory, creative, and egalitarian virtues, answers many of the problems caused by neoliberalism and hyperglobalism, and is essential to democracy at its best. Join WACA for a conversation with Professor Tamir as she explains why it is more important than ever for the Left to recognize these qualities of nationalism, to reclaim it from right-wing extremists, and to redirect its power to progressive ends.
