Speaking

I am happy to give a talk to any interested group or organization. The thousands of hours that I have spent in front of the classroom and the dozens of public events at which I have spoken over the past few years have provided me with significant public-speaking experience that I will bring to your event. I typically receive a modest honorarium and/or travel expenses for speaking engagements outside of the Lebanon area.

Some of the topics about which I can speak are listed below.

Donald Trump: A 21st-Century Andrew Jackson?
