Thursday, May 25, 6:30-8:30pm
New York University
King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center
53 Washington Square South, Manhattan
Hear Helena Sheehan, author of The Syriza Wave: Surging and Crashing with the Greek Left, talk about her book with Nantina Vgontzas, NYU Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology and AKNY-Greece Solidarity Movement member, Thomas Harrison, Co-Director, Campaign for Peace and Democracy, and Molly Nolan, NYU History Professor. Once a strong Syriza supporter, Sheehan now sees the party transformed from a horizon of hope to a vortex of despair. But out of the dust of defeat, she asks what we can learn from the Greek experience to help the left in Greece, the United States, and beyond succeed as it renews resistance to authoritarianism and austerity programs.
