In recent years, unexpected and dramatic changes have taken place in the global political and economic landscape: America is challenged by China and Russia; old alignments are destabilized in Asia, Europe and other regions; new wars erupt in the Middle East; a Technological Revolution is underway and the Corona pandemic has had a profound impact. Are these and other happenings symbols of a new global era? Is our world being re-made? Who will be the winners and losers? In this context, can America remain #1? Can our political system cope? PROFESSOR RALPH BUULTJENS will discuss these vital questions and their impact on America’s future. Long-time professor at New York University and Cambridge University (UK), Professor Buultjens is a well-known analyst of international affairs. Author of several books and a media commentator, he has received many awards. He has been a regular speaker at The South Orange-Maplewood Adult School for many years. This year, Professor Buultjens will dedicate his talk to Eva Samo who celebrates her 100th birthday on November 1. 

Please note: Due to the recent rise in Covid numbers, it is no longer prudent for a large number of people to gather at Winchester Gardens. Therefore, the Eva Samo lecture will now be online only. We will email a Zoom link to you the day before the event. We apologize for this change, but we feel that the health and safety of our guests and the residents of Winchester Gardens is of utmost importance.

Thank you for your understanding.
