Now in its 12th year in Greenville, the program runs for eight consecutive Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon in the auditorium of the Rivers West Building. The program started Jan. 17.
Using video lectures from academic and professional experts, the program addresses topics of global significance. The 2015 topics include Russia and the Near Abroad, Privacy and the Digital Age, Sectarianism in the Middle East, India Changes Course, U.S. Policy Toward Africa, Syria’s Refugee Crisis, Human Trafficking in the 21st Century, and Brazil’s Metamorphosis. Each session will run approximately one and a half hours, beginning with an hour-long lecture followed by a discussion period.
ECU students, staff and faculty may attend for free and purchase the program book for $20. The public is invited to attend for a fee of $40 for all eight sessions, which includes membership in the World Affairs Council of Eastern North Carolina. The textbook is an additional $20.
