Monday, February 20

Dear all:

The meeting this evening is cancelled because I have yet to return from Denver. Apologies to everyone. If people would like, we could arrange a meeting later this week to do the simulation. Does Thursday night work for people? Perhaps we could meet twice next week.

There was some question about the JM Young Award. The figures that were sent out with the fundraising letter is the figure that should be used. Use the individual cost figure on the budget. Also: those applying should find a faculty member to sponsor them.

See you soon.

Monday February 13

Meeting is in Alcove C at 8:30 PM.

If people have an interesting article about Croatia and/or Brazil, please post a link on the blog. Use the "Comments" link to do this. If you have any questions or comments that you want the whole group to see, post them in this way.

Otherwise, we'll keep talking about the "Yugoslavia" article that was mentioned last week.

Someone suggested that we watch the movie "No Man's Land." You can read a summary of this movie online.

The meeting on Monday will be in Alcove C. Hope to see you all there.

The article that we discussed reading last week is entitled "Yugoslavia: New War, Old Hatreds." It gives a brief background to some of the issues at play in the region. It will be especially useful for those interested in the International Court of Justice.

Access to the article is a bit complicated.
1. Go to JSTOR
2. Enter your KUID and password.
3. Search JSTOR for this article.

Sorry about all of this. I am trying to find a way to give direct access to the article from the blog, but I haven't figured it out yet.
