New Republic Editor to Speak on China’s Power and International Foreign Policy in Pomona Student Union Event

The Pomona Student Union (PSU) at Pomona College will host Joshua Kurlantzick, foreign editor of The New Republic, who will speak on China’s soft power and the consequences for international foreign policy, on Wednesday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 p.m.

Joshua Kurlantzick joined The New Republic as foreign editor in October 2002. The June 27, 2005 issue of the magazine included his report on “How China is Changing Global Diplomacy: Cultural Revolution.”

Prior to working for TNR, Kurlantzick covered international economics and trade for U.S. News and World Report and Southeast Asia for The Economist as a correspondent based in Bangkok, Thailand. In addition, Kurlantzick has written for Foreign Affairs, The Washington Quarterly, World Policy Journal, The Atlantic Monthly and Current History, among others. Kurlantzick is a graduate of Haverford College.

The event is sponsored by the Pomona Student Union, a non-partisan student organization dedicated to "raising the level of honest and open dialogue on campus. By helping students become more knowledgeable and better informed on the political and social issues that confront our society, PSU aims to create informed citizens.”

The talk is open to the public and will be held in the Frank Dining Hall's Blue Room (260 E. Bonita Ave., Claremont). There is no charge to attend the lecture.

Pomona College, one of the nation’s premier liberal arts institutions, offers a comprehensive program in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Its hallmarks include small classes, close relationships between students and faculty, and a range of opportunities for student research.
