Second in a series: Waking The New Republic: Facebook Co-Founder Chris Hughes’ Plan for Revival.

For nearly 100 years, The New Republic has provided readers with an intelligent, stimulating and rigorous examination of American politics, foreign policy and culture. However, recent years have not been kind to the magazine industry and the publication reached a low point in 2012. When Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook and digital strategist of the 2008 Obama campaign, acquired The New Republic in March, he was widely hailed as precisely what the brand needed.

Under Hughes’ leadership, the print magazine and all digital properties are undergoing a meaningful redesign grounded in a significantly expanded editorial and business staff. Hughes is leading a young, ambitious team as they re-position The New Republic’s brand as something youthful, dynamic, and digitally savvy.

Join min Group Editorial Director, Tony Silber and Chris Hughes on November 13th for a spirited Q&A as Hughes describes his plans for the brand, the relaunch, and discusses how a social activist whose history is in online businesses came to run this nearly century-old publication.
