College of Arts & Sciences, Boston University, 725 Commonwealth Avenue, Room B36

Join us for a panel discussion with Peter Hall and Michele Lamont, co-editors of Social Resilience in the Neoliberal Era, and Vivien Schmidt and Mark Thatcher, co-editors of Resilient Liberalism in Europe’s Political Economy. The four panelists will take up the question of “resilience,” both the resilience of neoliberal ideas in policy debates and policy discourse, the theme of Schmidt and Thatcher’s book, as well as the resilience of communities, social groups and nations in the face of neoliberal challenges, the theme of Hall and Lamont’s book. They hope, by discussing the books together, to highlight the dynamism between ideas and agents, or actors, in political economic life.
