World Affairs Council event? September 12, 2008Posted by jasonized in Uncategorized.
One of the best resources for international policy in our backyard is the World Affairs Council, which brings excellent leaders, intellectuals, and practicioners of international affairs to the Bay Area. Their September calendar is up, and last year it was a delightful evening with IPPG–first an interesting talk in the classy Fairmont Hotel and then dinner at a cheap India restaurant.
I’m thinking it would be great for a bunch of us to go to either:
Any preferences or thoughts? (Though I’m realizing I have class on 9.29 at night, nonetheless it might be a great time out if someone wants to organize it.)
International event listings at UC Berkeley September 3, 2008Posted by jasonized in ucberkeley.
There are many international speakers and events that come to Berkeley. It’s tough to keep track of them all, but here are the most active event listings relevant to international policy at Cal.
- Institute for International Studies (IIS) – They consistently bring around interesting speakers from all sorts of backgrounds, and of all the lists to be on this one will be most interesting and unpredictable. Also, at the beginning of the academic year they usually host an open house so you can learn about current research projects and get involved on them if you wish.

- Institute for East Asian Studies (IEAS) – It is what you think, though generally very China heavy. Then again, Cal has one of the best China studies schools in the US.
- International House – Located next to the stadium at the high side of campus, I-House offers both formal talks and a whole bunch of smaller social events. The cafe’s a nice place to meet folks too. (I know several of you live there, so where are the invites, yo?).
- Pacific Film Archive (PFA) – Located right next to campus, PFA bring films from all over the world to Berkeley. It’s an extraordinary gift to have it so close by, and with discounts for Cal students!
