Please register with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations online or by phone at 866-850-1846 by Wednesday, March 27. The Grinnell-in-Washington, D.C. Regional Planning Committee will be providing a casual dinner and beverages for our enjoyment. Please be sure to include any dietary restrictions in your registration and we will do our best to accommodate them.


The syllabus, like the title for this classroom event, draws from a series of short articles published last year in Foreign Affairs. The students will have read the articles to prepare for the event. We're asking you to do the same in preparation for an engaging discussion with Professor Trish and the students. For those who want a little more homework, check out the video produced on the same topic.

If you have trouble accessing the homework materials or have any questions, please email Anna Halpin-Healy '13, assistant director of alumni relations for regional programs, at

We look forward to seeing you there!
