The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University and the Harvard Alumni Association invite you to attend a lecture and discussion with: 

Tomiko Brown-Nagin RI '17
Dean, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study; Daniel P.S. Paul Professor of Constitutional Law, Harvard Law School; and Professor of History, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University

Since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his decision to step down from the Supreme Court, the potential influence of his successor on a range of critically important issues that could come before the Court in the coming years has been the subject of intense speculation and analysis. In her inaugural lecture as Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Tomiko Brown-Nagin RI ’17 will put the present moment in context, exploring how the Court has—or has not—driven social change and responded to popular movements for social change at crucial points in 20th-century US history. Following her lecture, Dean Brown-Nagin will open the floor to questions from the audience.

Reception: 6 PM
Program: 7 PM

Registration is required.
