Is America’s role as the dominant world power beginning to erode?
Best-selling author and Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind will be the first speaker addressing this and other questions during this year’s Osher Lifelong Learning Insitute at Dartmouth Summer Lecture Series.
Suskind will speak July 15 on the topic “American Leadership in an Age of Fear.”
The six-session series continues on Wednesday mornings from 9 to 11:30 through Aug. 19 in Spaulding Auditorium at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

The sessions will also explore ways the challenges might be addressed.
Suskind and the other speakers will discuss the question from different perspectives, including military, economic, and media influence.
