Hope and Politics: Lessons from St. Augustine

Apr. 04, 2022
11:00 PM - 12:00 AM
Testa Fuller Auditorium, 006

The Politics and the Virtues Lecture Series continues with a lecture by Dr. Michael Lamb, PhD on the virtue of hope: is hope always a virtue in politics? What does healthy hope look like? Why should we cultivate it?

Michael Lamb is Assistant Professor of Politics, Ethics, and Interdisciplinary Humanities and Executive Director of the Program for Leadership and Character at Wake Forest University. He is also a Research Fellow with the Oxford Character Project. He holds a Ph.D. in politics from Princeton University, a B.A. in political science from Rhodes College, and a second B.A. in philosophy and theology from the University of Oxford, where he studied as a Rhodes Scholar. 

Michael’s research focuses on the ethics of citizenship and the role of virtues in public life. His work has been published in a number of edited volumes and academic journals, including the American Political Science Review, Review of Politics, Journal of Religious Ethics, Journal of Moral Education, and Journal of Character Education. His book, A Commonwealth of Hope: Augustine’s Political Thought, will be coming out this Spring with Princeton University Press.
