Previous Feinberg Lecturers include senior investigative researcher and director of special projects for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center on Extremism Joanna Mendelson, journalist and author Robin Wright, Holocaust historian Deborah E. Lipstadt, former Senate Majority Leader George J. Mitchell, U.S. Ambassador to Israel and Egypt Daniel C. Kurtzer, Dr. Judea Pearl, and Justice Richard Goldstone, among other notable individuals.
