Roger Cohen, a columnist for the New York Times since 2009, is one of the most incisive observers of global affairs today. Cohen’s deep knowledge of German and Jewish history—he was the Times’ Berlin bureau chief from 1998–2001—informs much of his wide-ranging commentary. In this lecture, he will synthesize the themes of this series into a broader narrative about the disruptions and discontents of modernity, the fragility of democracy, and the twin crises of conflict and migration.
