Where Do We Go From Here: Leadership in Turbulent Times

Kinder Institute Distinguished Lecture with Doris Kearns Goodwin


For the Kinder Institute’s biennial Distinguished Lecture, world-renowned presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin will reflect on more than 150 years of U.S. history to put into context our most recent unprecedented presidency—a fast-paced, unpredictable, and at times impulsive Administration. By sharing her deep understanding of the ambition, resolution, and resilience of some of our nation’s most revered presidents, Goodwin will explain how past setbacks and triumphs shed light on the cultural, economic, and political transformations that define today’s turbulent times. With a goal of educating and entertaining the audience, Goodwin will also bring to life some of our most successful presidents to provide insight for today’s leaders, and to demonstrate that however fractured our modern political culture has become, our democracy is also resilient and has survived—even thrived—through more troubling times in the past.

Free and open to the public, the Distinguished Lecture will be held on November 6, 2017, at 7:00 PM in Jesse Auditorium on the University of Missouri campus.
