January 21 | 6 p.m. | Corrigan Conference Center, Lincoln Center Campus
In light of last year’s tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, vigorous communities of both pro-and anti-gun advocates have sprung up online in what Saul Cornell, Ph.D., the Paul and Diane Guenther Chair in American History and leading expert on the Second Amendment calls “a new sphere of cyber space where they can continue to advocate.”
On Jan. 21, 2014, at 6 p.m. Fordham University’s Department of History will get involved in the conversation when it sponsors “The Future of Commonsense Gun Regulation: Where do We Go From Here?” The event will take place in the Corrigan Conference Center on Fordham’s Lincoln Center Campus.
Cornell will moderate the conversation of panelists who include:
- Robert Spitzer, distinguished service professor and chair of political science at SUNY Cortland, a leading authority on the politics of gun control, the presidency, and congress.
- Kristin A. Goss, associate professor of public policy and political science at Duke University, an expert on the gun control movement, woman’s political activism, and philanthropy.
This session will take stock of the current situation and offer some insight into the future of the gun debate in America.
The event is sponsored by the Department of History, Office of the Provost, Office of the Dean of Faculty of Arts & Sciences, Dean of Fordham College Rose Hill.
