MBSC Spring Faculty Speaker Brunch in Aptos on Saturday, April 6, 2019

Monterey Bay Stanford Club is thrilled to announce that New York Times bestselling author Francis Fukuyama, Senior Fellow at the Stanford Freeman Spogli Institute (FSI) for International Studies and Mosbacher Director of FSI's Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law, will be speaking to us about his newest book, Identity: The Demand for Dignity and the Politics of Resentment.  

Recent elections have seen incumbent center-left and center-right parties challenged and, in some cases, defeated by insurgent populist, anti-immigrant candidates or parties.  These charismatic, populist nationalists are connecting to their bases on a platform of exclusion and identity. This talk will discuss the economic, political, and social forces driving this surge, and the ways in which it threatens the future of democratic government. The hope being that, while we can’t deny the desire for identity recognition, we can shape identity to support our democracies around the world.

We are so fortunate to have a current Stanford faculty member come speak to our club at the beautiful Seascape Golf Club in Aptos. You'll enjoy a buffet brunch and the opportunity to meet and network with other Stanford alums and friends. Faculty speakers provide intellectual stimulation, reflect the ongoing excellence of the Stanford faculty, and offer a means for alumni to connect with each other and to the University. 

Registration for this event closes on March 31st.
