If you're in Washington, we'd be very grateful if you joined our Foreign Policy Society on Sunday, March 26th in discussing “The Role of Anti-Americanism in International Relations” with Alan McPherson, outstanding scholar, friend of this blog and author of acclaimed, award-winning Yankee No! Anti-Americanism in U.S.-Latin American Relations.

Some suggested background reading (including an excerpt of the book) is made available at www.foreignpolicysociety.blogspot.com. If you would like to join our chic, fashionable Washington list, please send a blank email to this address.

The event is set to take place on March 26th, at 7:30pm at Teaism, located on the corner of 8th and D streets (visible from the Archives/Navy Memorial metro stop). Our events are free but please plan to join us at 7:00 for dinner to support our venue provider and have a chance to be assimilated into our cult meet other exciting, fun new members.

Furthermore, for the month of April, we are pleased to announce two distinguished guest speakers, Tom Clemmons of IFES and our own David Adesnik who will discuss U.S. efforts in the promotion of democracy abroad. The details on these events will follow soon.

Now if you're in New York, our event there will be taking place this Tuesday at 7:30 pm, and will be a double-decker roundtable discussion on the topic of humanitarian intervention with some room left to discuss Iran as well. If you live or work in New York, we'd be awfully grateful if you could join us. This event is being kindly cosponsored by the Oxford Alumni Association, and organised by Juliya Salkovskaya. There are several readings suggested on the website of the alumni association, and perhaps without getting into too much trouble I can advertise the presence of our friend blogger Taylor Owen as a special invited guest. Juliya will be announcing the location shortly, and she can be reached by email at ys2264 at columbia.edu. You can also subscribe to receive notices from our New York chapter by sending a blank email to this address.

In final dispatch, I really must extend deep personal thanks here to Saliha Dobardzic, as well as to Amanda Butler, Soren Dayton, John Ciorciari and David, for their heartfelt generosity and help in getting our Washington chapter up and running again, and likewise to Juliya Salkovskaya for doing the same in New York. I'm terribly grateful to them all.
