NY TIMES CORRESPONDENT TO SPEAK AT GRADUATE RESEARCH CONFERENCE APRIL 13-14

Old Dominion University will sponsor the six annual Graduate Research Conference, featuring Steve Weisman, chief diplomatic correspondent for The New York Times, Friday and Saturday, April 13-14, at Webb University Center.

This year's conference will echo themes of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown and reflect upon the challenges of the 21st-century world.

Weisman will deliver the lecture, "Threat or Opportunity: How The New York Times Covers Globalization," at noon April 13 in the Isle of Wight/Cape Charles Room.

According to conference organizer Regina Karp, associate professor of political science and geography and director of the Center for Regional and Global Study, many of the presentations will address the fragmentation of international relations.

"The conference provides an important venue for exploring the diversity of research that seeks to address some of the most salient issues in global affairs," she said.

Panel discussions include "International Institutions: Under Pressure to Adapt," "Evolving Europe: National Responses," "Managing Globalization," "Germany's Entanglements," "Chinese Political Developments," "Domestic Challenges to Weak States" and "U.S. Regional Engagement: Riddles and Transformations."
