Catholic University's School of Arts and Sciences, in conjunction with the Department of Politics and the Study Abroad Program, will host "Crucial Alliance?: The United Kingdom and The United States in 2007," a lecture presented by British Parliament member Sir Patrick Cormack.

In his speech, Cormack - a Conservative Party member of Parliament and one of the longest-serving members of the House of Commons - will assess the state of the alliance over the last 30 years, and particularly since 9/11, and will look to the future and a shift in leadership both within the United States and the United Kingdom.

During his career in Parliament, Cormack has held many prominent positions, including a term as shadow deputy leader of the House of Commons. Since 2005 he has been the chairman of the Select Committee on Northern Ireland Affairs.

The lecture is part of a centennial series of events commemorating the 100th anniversary of the School of Arts and Sciences. The centennial series will extend through the fall 2007 semester.
