While the world is adapting to COVID-19, the Biden-Harris administration, Brexit, the rise of China, and other momentous changes, we are engaging in a series of online conversations with prominent scholars, journalists, and public officials, produced in cooperation with the World Affairs Council of Dallas and Fort Worth. With Baylor sponsorship, these are free and open to the public, but they require registration on the World Affairs Council website at the links provided below. Please join us!
 
On the first registration page, click "Complimentary" (or make a contribution to the World Affairs Council if you wish), and then "continue," then fill in the required items on the form, and click "submit." A Zoom link will be sent to you.
