1:00 PM Talk: Lessons of East European Totalitarianism for the Postmodern World Join us for a special lecture in the Challenging Conversations series, with a panel that brings together leading historians of Eastern Europe whose work examines the rise and fall of totalitarian ideologies in the twentieth century. Panel includes Dr. Patrick Hyder of UC San Diego, Dr. Steven Seegel of University of Northern Colorado, Dr. Marci Shore of Yale University, and Dr. Tim Snyder of Yale University, and will be moderated by Dr. Amelia Glaser of UC San Diego.

In 1989 the Berlin wall fell, initiating the collapse of the Soviet Union. The historian Francis Fukuyama declared that the rise of liberal democracy throughout the world may signal "The End of History". But the recent rise in right-wing populism suggests that liberal democracy itself may be coming to an end. Is the past repeating itself? Are terms like "fascism", "autocracy", and "totalitarianism" appropriate or useful to our 21st Century context? Join us for the event to weigh in!

2:00 PM Talk: Crisis of South Korean Politics and Prospects for Foreign Policy South Korea is mired in Park Geun Hye's impeachment and as a result the 2017 presidential race has begun. Meanwhile, South Korea's foreign policy is in disarray. The Trump Shock has produced an uncertain future for the ROK-U.S. alliance, while inter-Korean relations have hit rock bottom. China-South Korean relations have also soured over the issue of deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD).

Against this backdrop, this symposium will look into Park's impeachment process, prospects for the presidential election, and the impacts on South Korea's foreign policy and inter-Korean relations.

Panelists:

Chung-in Moon, Yonsei University
Seong-ho Sheen, Seoul National University
Lynn Turk, Pacific Century Institute
Moderator: Tai Ming Cheung, UC San Diego

Admission/Cost: FREE Registration required.

7:00 PM Socialism And The Russian Revolution: Part 3 A specter is haunting world capitalism: the specter of the Russian Revolution. This year marks the centenary of the world-historical events of 1917, which began with the February Revolution in Russia and culminated in October with "ten days that shook the world" — the overthrow of the capitalist provisional government and conquest of political power by the Bolshevik Party, under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin and Leon Trotsky.

In the Visionary suite, on the third floor of the Aztec Student Union. Part III: The Role of the Revolutionary Party of our theoretical series on the events and legacy of the Russian Revolution.

7:00 PM Reading: Abeer Hoque And Stephen Beachy Reading Abeer will be reading from her memoir Olive Witch and Stephen from his new novel Zeke Yoder vs. the Singularity. In the 1970s, Abeer is a Bangladeshi girl growing up in a small sunlit town in Nigeria where the red clay earth, corporal punishment and running games are facts of life. At thirteen she moves with her family to suburban Pittsburgh. Finding her place as a young woman in America proves more difficult than she can imagine. In Zeke Yoder vs. the Singularity there is a newly installed anti-human government and ferocious resistance to that government. A mind-bending dystopian science fiction that merges the metaphysical speculation of Philip K Dick with the good clean fun of Amish bromance.

Wartime intrigue spans the lives of three women past and present in the latest novel from the acclaimed author of Secrets of a Charmed Life.

February, 1946. World War Two is over, but the recovery from the most intimate of its horrors has only just begun for Annaliese Lange, a German ballerina desperate to escape her past, and Simone Deveraux, the wronged daughter of a French Resistance spy. Now the two women are joining hundreds of other European war brides aboard the renowned RMS Queen Mary to cross the Atlantic and be reunited with their American husbands. Their new lives in the United States brightly beckon until their tightly-held secrets are laid bare in their shared stateroom.
