On March 29, the University of Connecticut's Lewis R. Gordon, a professor of philosophy, will visit DePaul for a lecture titled, "On Neo-Fascism." Sponsored by the Department of Educational Policy Studies and Research, the event will analyze the meaning and significance of the rise of Neo-fascism in the contemporary political culture of the United States. All DePaul University community members are invited, no RSVP required.

Gordon, a prominent philosopher and political thinker, will draw on insights from philosophers, political theorists, sociologists and psychologists to outline what endures and what is different about contemporary fascism. In addition to his work at the University of Connecticut, Gordon has held several distinguished visiting appointments at institutions across the world, including the Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès, France; Rhodes University, South Africa; and the University of the West Indies at Mona, Jamaica.
