The topic is  "After the Paris Attacks: What’s Next?” A conversation with Professor Howard Schweber. “Come and be informed about what’s happening in Europe and the Middle East; the current status of the situations, results of the G20 summit and the decisions global leaders are taking. Come to get the scoop and bring your opinions to share. Free coffee and bakery will be provided!

Professor Howard Schweber is from the Department of Political Science. He teaches courses focusing on constitutional law and legal and political theory. He is the author of "Democracy and Authenticity" (Cambridge, 2012), "The Language of Liberal Constitutionalism" (Cambridge, 2007), "The Creation of American Common Law"(Cambridge, 2004), and "Speech, Conduct, and the First Amendment" (Peter Lang, 2003) as well as articles, essays and book chapters on a variety of related topics. His current areas of research include comparative constitutional law and democratic theories of representation. He is a regular guest on Wisconsin radio and gives frequent newspaper, radio, and television interviews in the local, national, and international press. He is also a contributing blogger at Huffingtonpost.com and an occasional guest blogger on other sites, and a frequent public speaker both on and off campus.
