Tuesday, April 25
Marlboro College just informed us that the Thai Ambassador has cancelled his visit to Vermont and thus the talk described below.  We hope we can reschedule it at a future date.  

The last event in our WWAC/Marlboro College International Lecture Series was to take place on Friday, April 28, 2017.  Pisan Manawapat, Royal Thai Government, formerly Ambassador to the European Union, India, and Canada, was to speak. He had changed the focus of his talk to make it more timely. It was now to be called “Thailand as a Key for Trump Administration’s Agenda in Asia.”  ThaiAmbassador

Pisan Manawapat became the 44th ambassador of Thailand to the United States on Feb. 23, 2015, having most recently served as the Thai ambassador to the European Union, Belgium, Luxembourg, India and Canada.


Coming up next for the WWAC on Friday, May 12 2017, at the Marlboro College Graduate Center:
Photojournalist Randy H. Goodman captured life in the Islamic Republic of Iran during  the hostage crisis and the Iran-Iraq war.  She recently returned to Iran after thirty-three years to photograph at yet another pivotal time in US-Iran relations: the signing of the Iran Nuclear Agreement.  Her portraits and street scenes, from both periods, present a unique perspective on that country’s past and future, which she will share in her talk and slide show presentation.

  1. Can we show this film in Brooklyn?

    I’m so excited for the Occitania talk! My interest in France has only grown since discovering this culture existed. I’m looking forward to learning more about it. I’ve heard Rai speak (and sing) before, and she’s well worth the two-hour commute for me. I can’t wait for this presentation.

    • We are very glad to hear from you and learn of your interest in Rai’s talk. We are sure that it will be a great presentation and look forward to seeing you there!

  4. Looking forward to learning more.
