Global Affairs Table
An ongoing and comprehensive foreign affairs dialogue at Brandeis. This series matches the Wien International Scholars with the student group Gen Ed Now to foster connections between faculty and students. The project team held their first event, on Zimbabwe, in late September. Check out coverage of the event here. The next Table, on Pakistan, was held on Nov. 18 and featured Wien International Scholars Anum Irfan Khan '10 and Nadir Daudi '10. Other collaborative versions of the Table have been held on Russia (with the Center for German and European Studies) and peace-building in Africa (with Coexistence International).
A spring Table is scheduled for March 25, on the economic crisis in Iceland:
