National Conference Call Interview
with Meghan L. O'Sullivan
Thursday, October 5, 2017
11:00 - 11:30 pm
In Windfall, Meghan L. O’Sullivan, Harvard professor and former Deputy National Security Advisor for President George W. Bush, proposes that significant changes in the last decade of America’s energy sector—the shift from scarcity to abundance of oil and gas, environmental concerns, technology, and innovation and ingenuity within the industry—are transforming politics and foreign policy to the advantage of the United States. Her book calls for a change in the thinking of policymakers, government leaders and elected officials to a new energy reality that has more upsides than downsides for America’s economy and its position in the world.

Herod the Great as a complicated, ruthless ruler who governed by means of tyrannical brutality; as a politically savvy survivor and connoisseur of great taste; as an ingenious architect and monumental builder at places like first-century Jerusalem, Caesarea Maritima, Herodium, Masada, and Machaerus.
Scholars at the conference will look not only the art and architecture of Herod's time but also at the way King Herod survived intense Middle Eastern political turmoil. This era in many ways is as important today as it was during Roman times.
Speakers include Jodi Magness (U. North Carolina), Andrea Berlin (Boston U.), Kenneth Holum (U. Maryland), David Mevorach (Israel Museum), Barbara Burrell (U. Cincinnati), Győző Vörös (Hungarian Academy of Arts), and Dawn Acevedo (La Sierra U.)
