Dear Fellow EPICureans,

We are rescheduling our much-anticipated EPIC Conversation between Dirk Salomons and Romano Lasker to September 10. We will be scheduling Zoom presentations for the remainder of the semester, given the current campus situation but, in the words of our speaker “Zoom would give the audience only a shadow of what Romano and I have prepared: an intergenerational dialogue about the past and future of the United Nations and of international cooperation more generally. Physical presence is nearly essential - the visual part of the interaction counts. The Q & A has to be live, interactive.” We look forward to more settled and peaceful times. 

—Jeanne Mager Stellman, EPIC President
