To the Editors:

Michael Walzer will deliver the twentieth annual Irving Howe Memorial Lecture at 6:30 PM on Monday, December 14, in the Elebash Recital Hall of the CUNY Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue (at 34th Street). The subject is “On Democratic Internationalism.” Walzer is professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton and the author of Just and Unjust Wars, Spheres of Justice, On Toleration, and, most recently, The Paradox of Liberation, among many other works, as well as editor emeritus of Dissent magazine. Sponsored by the Center for the Humanities, these lectures honor the late critic, editor, and political writer Irving Howe (1920–1993), who taught at the City University of New York from 1963 to 1986. They are made possible by a generous gift from the late Max Palevsky and are free and open to the public.
