DCC to Host Author, Bard Professor for Brexit Lecture

October 8, 2019 – Dr. Richard Aldous, the Eugene Meyer Professor of British History and Literature at Bard College, will give a lecture at Dutchess Community College about the dynamics of Britain’s Brexit initiative relative to the country’s relationship with the U.S.

The presentation will be held Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. in the James and Betty Hall Theatre. The talk is the third event in the Dr. D. David Conklin Distinguished Lecture Series, established by the DCC Foundation to recognize the College’s fourth president who retired in 2014.

Aldous will discuss Britain’s rocky road toward Brexit, the plan to remove itself from the European Union, and how it has illuminated the uncertain economic future that awaits the country and other European nations if the separation comes to fruition. Aldous is the author/editor of 11 books and was the chair of University College Dublin’s history department.
