Visit of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to ECSU

Madeleine Albright

At the end of March, Eastern will receive former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for a talk on the challenges the U.S. and world face in the XXI Century (click here for additional information). This is a challenging topic to be addressed by one of the most prominent high-level officials of the U.S. Government in the past decades. Her tenure in office was full of extraordinary events, and her actions influenced some of the important political outcomes of the last century, not only in terms of the overall diplomatic and objectives of the U.S. but also in terms of a larger international agenda, where the issue of international security remains a priority.

There are several biographic books about Secretary Albright, including her autobiography, that provide useful insights of this prominent figure. Including:

 

Madame Madam Secretary: A Memoir (2013) by Madeleine Albright.

 

Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948 by Madeleine Albright.

 

Madeleine Albright: Against All Odds (2000) by Michael Dobbs.

 

Seasons of Her Life: A Biography of Madeleine Korbel Albright  (1999) by Ann Blackman.

 

But there are many other sources devoted to her work (click here).

Gender in Public Policies – Pizza and Politics Night

An Evening on Politics – Gender in Public Policies

A comparison of approaches from Latin America and the U.S.

On Thursday October 24 Dr. Nora Nagels of the Université de Montréal and Professor Nicole Krassas of Eastern and students discussed different perspectives on social policies and gender. Part of the discussion addressed how public policies aimed at supporting vulnerable groups, such as Food Stamps in the U.S. and Cash Transfers in Latin America do not necessarily take into account a gender perspective in their design and implementation. This event was moderated by Professor Martin Mendoza-Botelho.

 

This event was co-Sponsored by the Department of Political Science, Geography and Philosophy, the Program of Latin American Studies and the Program on Gender Studies.
