Former Duke University President Nannerl O. Keohane will give a leadership lecture in early February at Duke's Sanford School of Public Policy.
Keohane, author of the new book "Thinking about Leadership," will speak Friday, Feb. 4. She'll be joined by Duke profesor Kristin Goss and Mike LeFevre, president of Duke Student Government.
“What Makes a Good Leader: A Conversation with Nan Keohane” will address Keohane’s perspectives on leadership and gender, based on her new book.
The event begins at 1:30 p.m. in Sanford’s Fleishman Commons and will be followed by a book signing and reception. The conversation is part of the Terry Sanford Distinguished Lecture series and is free and open to the public. Paid parking is available in the Science Drive visitor’s lot or the Bryan Center parking deck.
Keohane, a political theorist, is the Laurance S. Rockefeller Distinguished Visiting Professor of Public Affairs at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School and Center for Human Values. From 1993 to 2004, she was Duke’s first, and only, woman president.
Previously she was president of Wellesley College and taught at Swarthmore College, the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University. Her book is, in her words, “a contribution to the centuries-long conversation about human life in social groups that began before Plato and Aristotle and continues vigorously into the present day.”
Co-presenters Goss and LeFevre are both affiliated with Duke’s Hart Leadership Program.
