5:00 PM Lecture: Were Barbarians Barbaric? Join the Center for Hellenic Studies for a lecture featuring Professor Erich Gruen from the University of California, Berkeley. His lecture attempts to elicit how the term "barbarian" was understood in the Hellenic world.

Greeks regularly referred to those who did not speak Greek as "barbaroi." Was this simply a matter of language and culture? Or did the term carry within it a sense of ethnic inferiority? Did that label signify uncivilized savages who were reckoned as contemptible and even subhuman? In short, did such characterization constitute racism?

The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments are provided. Please RSVP online.

Admission/Cost: FREE RSVP

5:30 PM Discussion: Mexico's 2018 Presidential Election In light of the Mexican political parties' decision to consolidate the electoral calendar, Mexicans will head to the polls on July 1 to elect 629 federal officials: the president, 500 representatives, and 128 senators. Close to 2,800 local officials—including nine governors—will be elected as well.

Moreover, given the recent changes in the U.S.-Mexico binational relationship under President Trump, many new uncertainties have emerged. Will there be cooperation on issues such as immigration, trade, and border security? Will the new Mexican administration continue to support policies that further U.S. interests?

CGT Pacific Leadership Fellow and Harvard University Professor Jorge Dominguez will discuss these questions, addressing the issues surrounding the extraordinary number of offices on this year's ballot and how the coming elections will be unique due to a number of unprecedented factors: independent candidates, Mexicans voting abroad, and reelection.
