SBS: June 6
Today, US Army officers participating in the McConnell Center’s Strategic Broadening Seminar will consider China’s rising power in the context of foreign policy and defense and South East Asia through lectures and seminars led by Dr. Charles E. Ziegler, a UofL political science professor and Distinguished University Scholar, and Dr. Jason Abbott, the director of UofL’s Center for Asian Democracy. Officers will continue their discussion of Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations with Book IV.
Hosted by the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville, the Strategic Broadening Seminar is a four-week intensive program intended to enhance the strategic thinking and leadership potential of some of the nation’s rising young military leaders. Drawing on the expertise of top UofL faculty and guest speakers from around the nation, 31 military officers will consider major questions in philosophy, ethics and constitutionalism, as well as recent developments within the Pacific Asia region. UofL is one of only two universities invited to direct such a strategic broadening seminar for the US Army in 2014.
