The new semester has started, and the Krasno events series at UNC-Chapel Hill
will be running once again. Professor Klaus Larres was fortunate enough to have obtained a fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study
(IAS) at Princeton for this academic year. Therefore there will be fewer talks and events than usual. However, next year they will continue with a full program.
In cooperation with the Carolina International Relations Association
(CIRA) Prof. Larres will start off the semester by giving a lecture on FRIDAY, September 16, 2016, at 5:30pm (in the Student Union, the building next to the Davis Library, in room 3409). He will talk about the research that he conducted during the first half of this year at the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik
in Berlin, Germany’s leading think tank on international and security affairs.
His talk is entitled “The China Factor in Transatlantic Relations: Washington and Berlin’s Policies toward China in the 21st Century.”
On September 16, he will just have returned from a trip to Korea, both South and North Korea, therefore would to also talk a little about North Korea as a factor in Chinese and western foreign policies.
And if you happen to be in Seoul, South Korea, on Wednesday coming, August 31, 3pm
, then please come to the Institute for Far Eastern Studies
(IFES) for his lecture on the different approaches Germany and the US have taken toward China and in particular the conflicts about the South China Sea and market economic status.
More realistically, Prof. Larres looks forward to seeing you on Friday, September 16, 2016 at 5:30pm in the Student Union on the main campus of UNC-Chapel Hill. ALL ARE WELCOME.
