Howard Lecture | Danielle Allen, Author of Cuz: The Life and Times of Michael A

Danielle Allen, a Harvard University political theorist who has written a family memoir about the life and tragic death of her previously incarcerated first cousin, will deliver the Harry C. Howard Lecture March 13 at Vanderbilt University.

Danielle Allen, a Harvard University political theorist who has written a family memoir about the life and tragic death of her previously incarcerated first cousin, will deliver the Harry C. Howard Lecture March 13.  Allen, who is widely known for her work on justice and citizenship in both ancient Athens and modern America, will discuss her 2017 book Cuz: The Life and Times of Michael A.

As the James Bryant Conant University Professor at Harvard, Allen has published broadly in the areas of democratic theory, political sociology, and the history of political thought.  Cuz is the true story of a teen-ager who spent nearly 11 years in prison after pleading guilty to an attempted car-jacking and admitting to four robberies. He ended up being murdered at age 29 after being released the previous year.

The lecture honors Harry C. Howard Jr., who earned his bachelor’s degree Vanderbilt in 1951, and allows the Robert Penn Warren Center for the Humanities to bring an outstanding scholar to Vanderbilt annually to deliver a lecture on a significant topic in the humanities.
