Felix G. Rohatyn, former Ambassador to France (1997-2000) and longtime chairman of the Municipal Assistance Corporation (Big MAC), will speak on America’s long and complex relationship to Europe and on the rift between the U.S. and France caused by the Iraqi War.
Born in Europe, Rohatyn came to the U.S. in 1942 at the age of 15, in flight from the Nazis. A unique combination of businessman and diplomat, Rohatyn has a rare understanding of both cultures. At Baruch, he will be in dialogue with John Brenkman, Distinguished Professor of English and leader of the U.S.-Europe Seminar which brings together scholars, students, and researchers from across the metropolitan area.
