From Jeffrey Yorgey on February 8th, 2019
Patrick J. Deneen is the author of “Why Liberalism Failed” (Yale University Press, 2018), which has been reviewed by dozens of major media outlets including The New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal. Professor of political science and David A. Potenziani Memorial College Chair of Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, Deneen’s current work focuses on the growing conflict between—and potential new alignments arising out of—a globalist meritocratic elite and populist nationalists. His other books include “Conserving America? Thoughts on Present Discontents” (St. Augustine Press, 2016) and “Democratic Faith” (Princeton University Press, 2005). Deneen was speechwriter and special advisor to the director of the United States Information Agency (1995-1997) and served as assistant professor of government at Princeton University (1997-2005) and Tsakopoulos-Kounalakis Associate Professor of Government at Georgetown University (2005-2012) before joining the faculty of Notre Dame in 2012.
