Rebuilding Democracy Lecture Series: Mike Duncan

Mike Duncan, an American political history podcaster and author, will join the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' Rebuilding Democracy Lecture Series at 4 p.m. CDT May 2.

The event, conducted on Zoom, will feature a discussion between Duncan and Dean Robert Brinkmann based on Duncan’s podcast “Revolutions” and the role they played in the early beginnings of democracy as well as today. A moderated question and answer session will follow.

Duncan is one of the most popular history podcasters worldwide and author of two New York Times–bestselling books, “Hero of Two Worlds: The Marquis de Lafayette in the Age of Revolution” and “The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Republic.” His award-winning series, “The History of Rome,” remains a legendary landmark in the history of podcasting. Duncan’s ongoing series, “Revolutions,” explores the great political revolutions that have driven the course of modern history.
