September 20, 2023
Neighborhood House, Northeast Harbor
Established by the ASC Board in 2021 to honor our founders, Dorothy and Jim Clunan, every fall The Dorothy and Jim Clunan Lecture Series on Cultural Understanding and World Affairs will host a distinguished speaker with expertise in the areas to which the Clunans dedicated their lives: foreign affairs, civil discourse, the arts, and senior learning. We are particularly pleased that our inaugural speaker for fall 2023, will be Dr. Anne Clunan, the daughter of Jim and Dorothy, who has herself embraced their interests.
Anne follows her parents’ tradition of distinguished service in international affairs. She founded and led the Civic Education Project in countries transitioning from Communism, receiving the Velvet Revolution award from the Czech and Slovak governments. She subsequently worked in the U.S. Senate, the U.S. Department of State, where she was mentored by Madeleine Albright, and the British Houses of Parliament.
Anne earned her Ph.D. in political science at the University of California at Berkeley. She is now associate professor at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and faculty affiliate at the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University. She has published extensively on Russia’s resurgence and aspirations, on the implications of economic globalization, and on the threats posed by emerging technologies and biological weapons. Recently she was banned from Russia for her participation in the International Working Group on Russian Sanctions.
The talk will take place at the Neighborhood House and a reception will follow.
This presentation is free and open to the public and no reservations are required.
