MENTORSHIP WINE AND CHEESE with established scholar of Modern European Intellectual History, DR. WARREN BRECKMAN.

All alumni and students of the University of Winnipeg and PACE are warmly invited to join us for a MENTORSHIP WINE AND CHEESE with established scholar of Modern European Intellectual History, DR. WARREN BRECKMAN.

This event is set to take place on Friday, December 16th, 2016 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the University Club (4th Floor Wesley Hall; also familiarly known as the Castle Building).

Wine and cheese will be served to all our guests at the University Club, where we will be holding an intimate Q&A session with Dr. Breckman on topics related to career development, the educational goals of students and alumni, or to Dr. Breckman's research.

For those who are unfamiliar with Dr. Breckman's work, he is the Rose Family Endowed Professor of History at The University of Pennsylvania and the Co-Editor of the Journal of the History of Ideas. He is also the author of Karl Marx, the Young Hegelians, and the Origins of Radical Social Theory: Dethroning the Self (Cambridge, 1999; paperback 2001), European Romanticism: A Brief History with Documents (Bedford, 2007; Hackett, 2015), and Adventures of the Symbolic: Postmarxism and Radical Democracy (Columbia University Press, 2013). In addition, he has published articles on the history of philosophy and political thought, the development of consumer culture, modernism and urban culture, historical theory, contemporary theory, and nationalism. He is currently working on three projects: a study tentatively titled The Machiavellian Moment in Modern Thought, a micro-history of World War One based on the diaries of a Canadian cavalryman, and a two volume work titled The Cambridge History of Modern European Thought, which he is editing with Peter E. Gordon.
