CHESTER NEZ: WORLD WAR II NAVAJO CODE TALKER: A Chautauqua Presentation by Judith Avila

23 May 2016

Chester Nez was one of the original 29 code talkers, men who developed the only unbroken code in modern warfare and took it into battle against the Japanese. His life demonstrates how challenges enhance strength and how diversity augments the strength of a nation.

From Cold War to Hot Peace? Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and the 'Triangulation' of German Foreign Policy Dr. Joyce Mushaben, University of Missouri-St.Louis

19 Jan 2016

As Germany's first female, Eastern Chancellor, Angela Merkel took to the international stage like a moth to a flame. She quickly emerged as an effective mediator among three competing forces: the United States, the European Union and Russia. Her expertise in energy security, environmental sustainability, and climate change accorded her a distinctive voice in "high politics". Merkel presents herself as a critical friend of the US. Dr. Mushaben will present some short case studies illustrating Merkel's efforts to keep both superpowers engaged.
