Your Dinner with Professor Weinberger


Every year the university's Daedalus Society hosts a series of talks by faculty over dinner. The intention is to foster a less formal environment where people can engage interesting ideas (and not be responsible for an exam on them later).

Monday, October 23, at 6 p.m., Professor Weinberger will present a talk entitled "Restoring the Balance: War Powers in An Age of Terror". The talk and dinner will be held in the Murray Board Room. From the advert:

"Professor Weinberger's will address timely questions such as the constitutionality of the National Security Agency’s domestic wiretapping operation, as well as the implications of the recent Supreme Court decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, and demonstrate how recent events such as these bring into focus the larger question of how to balance war powers between the executive and legislative branches of government. Presently working on issues concerning the constitutional law of national security, Professor Weinberger teaches courses on international security and political philosophy, and has also worked as a Defense Analyst in Washington."

Normally the cost for dinner at these talks is $12.00. However, the department would like to pay for a few students (you needn't be a PG major) who might be interested in attending. If you would like to attend this event, would you please contact me? First come, first served.

UPDATE: Sold out!
