      Life in an Age of Death: War and the River in Bosnia and Herzegovina

      Guest Speaker: Azra Hromadzic, Associate Professor and O'Hanley Scholar, Department of Anthropology at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.  

      The majority of literature on wars understandably focuses on the horrific aspects of war, such as death, destruction, loss, displacement, trauma and despair. In this presentation, however, Professor Hromadžić will highlight that life in war is not only brutal and disastrous, but also in some respect deeply joyful and at times even fun. This requires that we portray the real and horrific experiences of death and destruction, but that we also ask: what kind of life emerges and unfolds in these injured landscapes? This presentation will show how during the Bosnian war and in the devastated city of ruins, Bihać, meaningful and joyful life materialized from more than just human relations.

      presents

      From NAFTA to USMCA: Changing Trade Relations and Political Consequences  

      The Trump Administration made a trade deal with the United States’ closest neighbors a priority in 2017, with the goal of replacing NAFTA with a new agreement that was “fair” to the U.S.  Efforts to negotiate a new treaty created tensions in US relations with Mexico and Canada.  This panel will explore both the efforts to reach NAFTA 2.0, its significance as a trade agreement, and the potential political and security consequences of the volatility in US-Canada-Mexico relations over the last two years.

      Speakers:

      Rafael Fernández de Castro, Professor and Director, Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies, School of Global Policy and Strategy, U.C. San Diego

      Meredith Lilly, Associate Professor and Simon Reisman Chair in International Affairs, the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University

      Keith Maskus, Arts and Sciences Professor of Distinction, Department of Economics, University of Colorado

      Discussants:

      Gladys McCormick, Associate Professor of History and Jay and Debe Moskowitz Chair in Mexico-US Relations, Syracuse University  

      Devashish Mitra, Professor of Economics and Gerald B. and Daphna Cramer Professor of Global Affairs, Syracuse University   

      Sponsored by Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs; Program on Latin America and the Caribbean (PLACA); Department of History; Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT); International Relations Program; Department of Public Administration and International Affairs (PAIA); Trade, Development and Political Economy; Social Science Program; Jay and Debe Moskowitz Endowed Chair in Mexico-US Relations; Department of Political Science; Department of Economics; and Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC)
