Daniel Patrick Moynihan's America

A conference at the Rothermere American Institute

The politician and scholar Daniel Patrick Moynihan was directly involved in or commented upon nearly all of the great and controversial issues in the twentieth century U.S. As a sociologist, political scientist, ethnographer, ambassador, senator, and official in four presidential administrations, Moynihan’s career spanned fifty years and numerous spheres of public life.

In 2016, the fortieth anniversary of Moynihan’s first election to the Senate, and thirteen years after his death, the Rothermere American Institute’s annual postgraduate history conference will be dedicated to a consideration of Moynihan’s legacy and the developments in the life of the American nation that occupied his career. The conference will include a keynote panel featuring John Price, who was Moynihan’s assistant for urban affairs in the Nixon White House.

A provisional programme is available here.

Questions can be addressed to the organisers (Louisa Hotson, Daniel Rowe, and Patrick Andelic) at moynihan2016@gmail.com.
