This Summer School Looks Like Fun

For an opportunity to learn more about liberty by dabbling across disciplines, consider applying to the first ever Legatum Summer School. Here’s the program’s description:

The first Legatum Summer School will take place in northern Italy, from 30 July – 5 August, 2012.

The Legatum Summer School seeks to promote a deeper understanding of the role liberty and responsibility play as the basis of prosperity in a changing, increasingly complex world. Through a prism of history, culture, arts, and science, Legatum’s world class faculty will engage participants in a conversation about today’s global economic and political challenges. This year’s week-long programme explores the question: “Why do Civilizations flourish – and fail?”

Summer School faculty includes the best-selling writer and chair of business journalism at Columbia University Sylvia Nasar (author, “A Beautiful Mind”); historian Wang Gungwu of the National University of Singapore; political commentator and Brookings Institution scholar Robert Kagan; renowned curator, art historian and Director of the Phillips Collection (Washington, D.C.) Dorothy Kosinski; and neuroscience expert Iain McGilchrist, amongst others.

Legatum is looking for “early to mid-career professionals of accomplishment and promise (up to 40 years of age) who have a proven track record of thinking creatively, locally and globally.” The deadline for applying is Sunday, February 19, 2012.
