Madeleine Korbelová Albright: Her Remarkable Journey

October 3

This single presentation will focus on former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s remarkable emergence into responsibility and influence in shaping American foreign policy in the aftermath of the Cold War. Political Science Professor Emerita and former Thursday Forum Director Margaret Haupt will concentrate on what is known of the personal influences in Albright's life and career that she has now explored in her recently published "Prague Winter."

Haupt will highlight what Albright has described to be the formative and continuing influence of her Czech heritage in her career.

An opportunity will also be provided for a guided tour of the exhibit Albright has called "Read My Pins." It opened at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in May and will be closing on Oct. 27.
