Jan-Werner Mueller to be one of “55 Voices for Democracy”

Thursday, Jan 9, 2020

The series “55 Voices for Democracy” is inspired by the 55 BBC radio addresses Thomas Mann delivered from his home in California to thousands of listeners in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, and the occupied Netherlands and Czechoslovakia between October 1940 and November 1945. In his monthly addresses, Mann spoke out strongly against fascism, becoming the most significant German defender of democracy in exile. Building on that legacy, “55 Voices”, a project of the Thomas Mann House in LA, brings together internationally renowned intellectuals to offer ideas for the renewal of democracy.

Professor Jan-Werner Mueller was selected to participate. Other participants include Francis Fukuyama,  Judith Butler and Orhan Pamuk.
