The DLS Team happily invites you to our inaugural lecture of the 2013-2014 school year!

It will take on September 11th, 2013, at 5:30 PM in the Big Lecture Room (SciencesPo Paris – Campus de Reims, Place Museux).

Our first conferences examines the history, consequences and cultural effects of 9/11, exactly 12 years to the day since it happened. A significant day in all our lives, it will give every student on our campus the chance to examine not only what 9/11 means to them personally, but to the world.

Our speaker will be Jennifer Rasamimanana, the cultural counselor of the US Embassy in Paris. A diplomat in the United States Foreign Service since 1999, she has been posted to missions in Togo, Syria, Tunisia, Jordan, the UAE, and France. She has also worked in the personal staff of former Secretary of Defense Colin Powell. Between 2010-2012, she was responsible for the US State Department’s outreach with Arabic media through her role as their Regional Arabic Language Spokesperson. A professor at the SciencesPo Paris School of International Affairs (PSIA), she also teaches courses in US foreign policy and diplomacy.
