Spotlight on global issues
The 2000 Johns Hopkins Symposium on Foreign Affairs kicks off
next Monday, Feb. 21, with an impressive lineup of six speakers
who will touch on a broad number of topics, all related to the
theme of globalization.
Economics, culture, business, diplomacy and
technology are among the areas to be covered.
"We wanted the symposium to be equally as
attractive to an IR major as it would be to the engineering
student or the econ major," says Aparna Saraf, a junior
international relations major and a co-director of the symposium.
"We wanted it to be kind of appealing to everyone, because it's
something that affects all of our lives."

something inexplicable happened. To put a twist on an old line:

applause and whistles began instantly, and some attendees even
leaped out of their seats and started clapping as if to request a
curtain call. Had Ricky Martin just entered the building?
