A Conversation with Professor Niall Ferguson
Historian, author, filmmaker, political adviser, columnist, academic… Niall Ferguson’s career has spanned decades, industries and continents. Author of 15 books including The Pity of War: Explaining World War One, and biographer of historic figures including Siegmund Warburg and the Rothschilds, Ferguson has also won plaudits for his film-making. In 2011 his production company, Chimerica Media, released its first feature-length documentary, Kissinger, which won the New York Film Festival’s prize for Best Documentary. Coining the term “Chimerica” to describe the symbiotic relationship between China and the United States, Ferguson will discuss a variety of subjects that he has written on over the years in his career as a public intellectual.
Niall Ferguson, MA, D.Phil., is the Milbank Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and a senior faculty fellow of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, where he served for 12 years as the Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History. He is also a visiting professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing. He has written for a number of international publications including The Sunday Telegraph, Newsweek and the Financial Times.
