Next Monday (10/17), MIRC will host our second practice job talk of the semester. Recent UMN PhD and current Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program fellow Rock Zhang will present on his dissertation chapter, "What is Wrong with Counterfeit? Explaining China's (Non)Compliance with the Global Trademark Regime." As usual, we will meet at 12:30pm in 1314 SocSci, and lunch will be provided. All are welcome!
On Tuesday (10/18), Pulitzer Prize-winning senior New York Times correspondent Eric Schmitt will present on his co-authored book Counterstrike: the Untold Story of America's Secret Campaign against al Qaeda. The talk will be held at 1:30pm in the Humphrey Forum and is sponsored jointly by the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, the Political Science Department, the Technological Leadership Institute, and MIRC. This event is free and open to the public.
Please find attached a flier for the Schmitt event as well as an updated MIRC events calendar. A couple of changes have been made due to a speaker cancellation. You can also find a continuously updated schedule at https://sites.google.com/a/umn.edu/mirc/schedule.
