Director of Foreign Policy Institute (SAIS) talks Tuesday April 26 at 7:30 PM

This did not get proper attention in the Courier, and we are highlighting it here.

On Tuesday April 26, tomorrow, the Speakers Committee will welcome  Carla Freeman, Director of the  Foreign Policy Institute at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International
Studies (SAIS).

She will speak on “Asia’s Hotspots and the US-China Relationship”.  It will be on Tuesday April 26 at 7:30 p.m. Auditorium.

According to the SAIS bio, linked to above, the speaker:

.  .  .   [C]ompleted her B.A. in Southeast Asia and History at Yale University, a certificate in Chinese language studies at Beijing Foreign Languages University, and a certificate in political science from Sciences Po in Paris. She received her M.A. and Ph.D. from SAIS, writing her dissertation on the political economy of reform in China and the challenges posed to its heavily industrialized Northeast region.
 
Current projects include a book with a working title China and the Global Commons, and edited volumes on China and developing countries; China’s international relations; and Chinese perspectives on North Korea. Recent publications include a collaborative study of China’s carbon market development and several pieces on China’s international relations.

We look forward to a fascinating and future-looking presentation.

    Richard –   Thanks so much for publicizing this further!  I am a great fan of Carla’s – she was a PhD student of my husband – and is an able and most attractive person who I much enjoy as a good friend as well.  Her father Charles (Chas) Freeman has spoken here twice – but mostly on the Middle East where he was ambassador to Saudi Arabia but also a China specialist as well.   So I hope we get a good audience tomorrow night!   Jeanne Barnett
