Presented by Vanderbilt University at Vanderbilt University | Blair School of Music | Ingram Hall

The two Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential historians will discuss “Presidential Leadership Lessons” in Ingram Hall at the Blair School of Music.

Doris Kearns Goodwin, the 2009 Nichols-Chancellor’s Medal recipient and author of presidential biographies on Franklin D. Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, will engage in an hour-long conversation with Jon Meacham, author of presidential biographies on Andrew Jackson and George H.W. Bush, and the Carolyn T. and Robert M. Rogers Chair in the American Presidency and Distinguished Visiting Professor at Vanderbilt. Across their various works, the two authors have offered that essential traits like openness and empathy cultivate effectiveness in the Oval Office. During the lecture, they will consider the overarching tenets of past presidential leadership as it relates to the globalized landscape of 21st–century politics in the upcoming election year.
