In his latest book In Praise of Forgetting, the writer and journalist David Rieff questions the way in which peoples tend to relate to the past. The articles of Rieff, an expert on immigration, international conflicts and humanitarianism, appear in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Le Monde, El País and other publications. He will talk to the journalist, academic and diplomat Rodrigo Pardo.
