Although the lecture by Mikhail Gorbachev, former president of the Soviet Union and Nobel laureate, for March 24 is nearly sold out, a limited number of tickets have been released. Tickets are still available for the roundtable discussion on Wednesday, March 25, from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Johnson Center Dewberry Hall.

Gorbachev will speak at Mason as part of a conference that explores the historical implications of the end of the Cold War.

The conference, “1989: Looking Back, Looking Forward,” will offer a critical perspective on how the lessons of the end of the Cold War should be applied to promoting peace and international cooperation in the coming decades.

Gorbachev’s address, “A Conversation with Mikhail Gorbachev,” will be presented at the Center for the Arts Concert Hall on Tuesday, March 24, at 8 p.m.

The roundtable discussion will also include Russian Federation Ambassador Sergey Kislyak; Robert Kuttner, co-editor of The American Prospect magazine; and William Webster, director of the FBI from 1978-1987.

The conference includes an ongoing film series and discussions with Mason faculty and visiting scholars. More information is available on a special web site.
