CHICAGO — Internationally known political pundits, strategists and power couple James Carville and Mary Matalin will participate in a wide-ranging discussion of the current state of politics as Northeastern Illinois University kicks off the Daniel L. Goodwin Distinguished Lecture Series on Feb. 2. The event will be moderated by award-winning Chicago journalist and Northeastern alumnus Thomas Corfman.

Known as "The Ragin' Cajun," Carville is America's best-known political consultant, having managed numerous successful political campaigns, including the election of President Bill Clinton in 1992. In recent years, Carville has focused on campaigns in more than 23 countries around the world. He also is a best-selling author, actor, producer, talk-show host, speaker and restaurateur.

A native of Illinois, Matalin is one of the most celebrated and popular conservative voices in the United States. After successful work in Illinois campaigns, Matalin moved on to Washington, D.C., where she served under President Ronald Reagan, worked as campaign director for President George H.W. Bush and assisted President George W. Bush. She also is a best-selling author, radio host, speaker and publisher.

Today, Carville and Matalin live in New Orleans with their two daughters.

Corfman, who earned his bachelor's degree from Northeastern in 1973, is an experienced reporter and editor on topics ranging from race relations to real estate. He has worked at The Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Reporter and Crain's Chicago Business. Before turning to journalism, Corfman was an attorney in private practice, specializing in criminal defense and civil rights cases.

The Daniel L. Goodwin Distinguished Lecture Series was created in 2015 by Daniel L. Goodwin, Chairman and CEO of Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, as part of his historic $2.5 million commitment to Northeastern Illinois University. The lecture series fund provides support to bring prominent and well-respected thinkers to the University for presentations in conferences, seminars and major lectures. Goodwin is a graduate of Northeastern and received his bachelor's degree in psychology and education. More information on this event is available at neiu.edu/lectures.
