9:36 a.m., Jan. 31, 2011----Seeing the United States through the eyes of people abroad is the theme of the University of Delaware's 2011 edition of Global Agenda, a premiere speaker series open to all students and the community.
This spring's series begins on Wednesday, Feb. 23, and includes a visit to UD by the president of the World Bank, Robert B. Zoellick, and others with global perspectives, including former foreign ministers of Jordan and Nigeria, the president of the Pew Research Center in Washington, a senior official of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the editor of The Globalist.
The series takes place at Mitchell Hall on Wednesdays. It is free and no tickets or reservations are required. A complete schedule and details of speaker appearances are available at the Global Agenda website.
Global Agenda, now in its tenth season, is presented by the Center for Political Communication, with support from the Institute for Global Studies and the UD departments of Communication and Political Science and International Relations.
The series is also an undergraduate course, in which students meet informally with each of the speakers to discuss foreign affairs issues. It is taught by Rosenberg Professor of Communication Ralph J. Begleiter, who is also director of the Center for Political Communication.
