In lieu of World Conversations this year, the Wang Center is hosting the Ambassador Chris Stevens Memorial Lecture. The Chris Stevens Memorial Lecture will celebrate the life of an extraordinary public servant and former Peace Corps volunteer. Robin Wright, author, foreign policy analyst, and award-winning journalist will share her views on the Islamic world and talk about her friendship with Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in Libya on the anniversary of 9-11 last year when militants attacked the embassy.
The event seeks to build knowledge in the PLU community about the Middle East and North Africa and the region's ties with the United States and to demonstrate pathways to building lasting peace.
Wang Grant recipients will present their work at a later date in the semester, so stay tuned for more information!
