Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince: Celebrating 500 Years of a Unique and Dangerous Genius

December 10, 2013 - 05:00 pm to 08:30 pm

5 – 6 p.m. reception, 6 – 8:30 p.m. talk

 

With Professor William J. Connell, La Motta Chair of Italian History, Seton Hall; Dr. William J. Landon, Acting Chair, Department of History and Geography, Northern Kentucky University; Professor Richard Mackenney, Department of History, SUNY Binghamton; Professor Massimo Ciavolella, Director, Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, UCLA

Very few works in the canon of western political literature can compare with the brilliant intensity of Machiavelli’s little work that we know as The Prince; and none can compare with its infamy. Moreover, Machiavelli’s name has been used an adjective (Machiavellian) to describe the machinations of deceitful politicians at least since the time of Shakespeare.

Join Professors Connell, Landon, Mackenney and Ciavolella for the only event of its kind being hosted in North America. These internationally recognized scholars will reflect on The Prince’s inception, its influence and its reception exactly 500 years after Machiavelli first mentioned his treatise in private correspondence.

FREE. Reservations not required. Parking $4.00, FREE for Art Museum Members.

 

Presented by The Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement, The Office of the President, Provost and Dean of Arts and Sciences at Northern Kentucky University, and the generous support of the following Departments: History and Geography; Political Science; Sociology, Anthropology and Philosophy; English; and World Languages and Literatures.
