Back to All Stories

I know this is the week before spring break, but as you cram for exams remember to take advantage of a needed diversion now and again and enjoy an exciting event on campus.

On Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. Ann Louise Bardach will discuss “With or Without Fidel: What’s Next for Cuba?” at Love Auditorium.

Bardach is a critically acclaimed author, speaker and award-winning reporter with a broad array of expertise. Serving on the Brookings Institution’s Cuba Study Project and a special correspondent for CBS News, she is widely considered the go-to reporter for people interested in Cuba and Miami.

Today at 12:15 p.m. there will be a panel discussion titled “Gender-Based Violence – How it’s Sustained and How it can End” at 207 Lathrop.

Sponsored for International Women’s Day by Oxfam and the Women’s Studies Program, the panelist will discuss nuanced issues of gender-based violence. Professor Mary Moran, of the Sociology and Anthropology Department, and Professor Maureen Hays Mitchell from the Geography Department will be on the panel.

If you feel stressed, come to Memorial Chapel at 12:15 p.m. Thursday for Luncheon Musicale. Student musicians will present a musical feast to comfort your soul, and the Department of Music will provide good food to comfort your body.

For the IR & Foreign Policy Speakers Series on Wednesday, Associate Professor Miriam Elman from Syracuse University will deliver a lecture on “Israel’s Elections and the Prospects for Middle East Peace in 2015”. Sponsored by the International Relations Program and the Kulla Lecture Fund, the lecture will take place at 5 p.m. in 105 Lawrence.
