All invited to complimentary lunch with special guest Dr. Michael Lamb on Feb. 13

The campus community is invited to a complimentary lunch with guest Dr. Michael Lamb on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

The lunch event, titled “What’s Hope Got to Do with It: Politics in a Time of Presumption and Despair,” runs from noon to 1:20 p.m. in Canyon Commons 103. During the session, our very own Dr. Joseph Clair will interview Lamb about his most recent book, A Commonwealth of Hope: Augustine’s Political Thought, which offers a novel interpretation of Augustine’s political thought and recovers his virtue of hope to inform contemporary politics. Lamb’s research focuses on the ethics of citizenship and the role of virtues in public life.

Guests are invited to go through the cafeteria line and join us for the talk, which will begin shortly after noon.

In addition, faculty are also invited and encouraged to join Lamb at 3 p.m. in Canyon Commons 103 that afternoon for a discussion, “Character Formation in the University: Ten Lessons from the Front Lines.”

Lamb is the F. M. Kirby Foundation Chair of Leadership and Character, executive director of the Program for Leadership and Character, and associate professor of interdisciplinary humanities at Wake Forest University. He is also an associate fellow of the Oxford Character Project.

He holds a PhD in politics from Princeton University, a BA in political science from Rhodes College, and a second BA in philosophy and theology from the University of Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
