WCFIA Fellows’ alumni reunion and conference
April 23, 2010
On 15 and 16 April all previous fellows of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs (WCFIA) were invited to gather – together with the 2009-2010 fellows – at Harvard for an Alumni reunion and conference. More than 50 previous fellows came over to Cambridge and followed an intensive two-days’ programme.
During the morning of the first day we could follow lectures of faculty, in different series such as on ‘History of Art and architecture’, on ‘Culture and Belief’, on ‘The United States in the World’ or on ‘Government’.
The first day’s programme schedule also included a special seminar with a conversation with young scholars on trends in research.
The second day opened with presentations and a discussion on how we think about the international system. Furthermore the conference included sessions on topics such as The Growing Power of China, The EU after Lisbon and The Global Economic and Financial Crisis, and ‘On the Frontlines of the ‘War on Terror’.
Concluding remarks were given by Steven Bloomfield, Executive Director of the WCFIA, and by Kathleen Molony, Director of the Fellows’program.
