The Dynamics of Identity: Characterizing Conflict in a Globalized World

On behalf of Lewis & Clark College, we proudly invite you, your faculty and students, and your community to the 53rd Annual International Affairs Symposium. This year’s symposium, The Dynamics of Identity: Characterizing Conflict in a Globalized World, examines the tensions of identity in today’s global conflicts. The symposium will explore identity within issues such as state surveillance, promoting international religious freedom, and managing ethnic conflict.

Among our lineup of speakers is General Wesley Clark, a retired four-star general and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Murtaza Hussain, a national security and civil liberties journalist at The Intercept, who will be debating each other on the potential threat of transnational foreign fighters. For more information about our other debates, speakers, and event details, please visit our webpage.

We hope that you can join us April 6th-8th for debates and discussions on today’s most pressing global issues as examined by a diverse set of viewpoints.

The symposium hosts the foremost scholars, advocates, and foreign policy figureheads who hail from around the globe to defend their positions and answer your questions. We find value in an honest and collaborative learning experience, and want to welcome all from the greater Oregon community to experience this exciting atmosphere.

In the spirit of community, we would also appreciate you spreading the word and extending this invitation to anyone you think may be interested.

We hope to see you this Spring.

Most Sincerely,

Vincent Singer ’17


Steering Committee, 53rd International Affairs Symposium
