How did we get to where we are today? In an age of globalization, with China and India taking over the business pages, we need a new story to understand the relationships between "the West and Rest." On May 20th, acclaimed SOAS University of London academic, Dr. Angus Lockyer, will lead us through a 50 minute lecture that is fast paced, thought provoking and entertaining throughout.
This event will be held from 7PM to 9PM at Stanford University and is sponsored by American Friends of SOAS University of London, in partnership with Cambridge Alumni Northern California.
