Shawn Landres will give this year's Guy & Libby Solomon Memorial Lecture, tentatively titled, "From Jewish Interests to Jewish Values: American Jewish Politics in the 21st Century."

The talk will explore the shift from American Jews' focus in the 20th century on interest-group influence to a politics of values and Jewish significance, in large part due to the slow but steady Jewish demographic decline. Among other things, Shawn will look at how Jews have been engaged in the public sphere in the past and how that is changing today.
