Hostler Lecture Series
The Hostler Institute hosts two lectures per year in collaboration with the President’s Lecture Series.
The Institute prides itself on encouraging robust critical debate, including the airing of highly controversial themes. Its operating motto is AUDIATUR ET ALTERA PARS (Let the Other Side be Heard). The Institute’s speakers are drawn from all areas of global affairs, including international diplomacy, academia, national security, and protest politics.
