Trends in Tolerance: France and the United States Since 2000
Historian and Cornell alumnus Josef Konvitz ‘67 will explore and compare trends in tolerance in France and the United States in a digital talk on March 15 at 5:30 p.m. EST.

Konvitz, a former professor at Michigan State University and diplomat with the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) in Paris, will focus on questions of interfaith relations and public leadership that transcend national borders. While Americans see France as a country with a high level of anti-Semitism, the French are disturbed by the influence of religion on American policy, Konvitz said.
