7:00 PM

In the fall of 2008 the United States will elect either its first African American president or its first female vice president. Either way this is news, and interest in this news does not stop at the borders of the United States. Our goal is to understand the nature and tenor (mood, attitude, feeling) of this discussion in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. A multilingual research team to study a discussion that crosses many linguistic and spatial boundaries was formed. This talk will be an opportunity for faculty to discuss these events and their impact around the world.
