This is part of our Tsakopoulos Kounalakis Lecture Series.

Lars Brownworth explores the historical flaws and foreign policy errors of the West resulting from a fundamental and long-standing misreading of the Eastern world that was deeply and profoundly shaped by the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) empire's thousand-year reign. Brownworth also examines the lessons of Byzantium that Western powers and institutions can draw upon today to more effectively engage "the East" and achieve regional and global diplomatic objectives.

Lars Brownworth, author and creator of "12 Byzantine Rulers" podcast. His newest book "Lost to the West: The Forgotten Byzantine Empire That Rescued Western Civilization" will be available for purchase.

The event will take place in the 6th floor boardroom.
