Bradley Lecture Series
Sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research

The American Enterprise Institute presents the 25th season of its Bradley Lecture series, which aims to enrich debate in the Washington policy community through exploration of the philosophical and historical underpinnings of current controversies.

Beginning October 7, 2013, and continuing each month through spring 2014, this season's lectures will feature six prominent scholars. Each lecture will begin at 5:30 p.m. in AEI's Wohlstetter Conference Center at 1150 Seventeenth Street, NW, Washington, DC. The sessions will be informal to encourage questions and open discussions, and a reception will follow each lecture.

For the 2013–14 Bradley Lecture Series, all registrants are welcome to attend free of charge.

The lecture series is made possible by a grant from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
