Every year, The Matsui Center hosts a distinguished former Member of Congress for a week long residency at UC Berkeley. During this week, The Matsui Lecturer speaks to classes, meets with students, and generally participates in the intellectual life of the Matsui Center and the Cal campus. He or she also delivers a primary lecture to the UC Berkeley community and the general public.
This year, we are happy to welcome Ellen Tauscher, former member of Congress and former Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs. Her residency will begin on October 28, and over the course of the week she will be meeting with students and faculty to talk about issues ranging from health care to business and, of course, politics. Her primary lecture will focus on arms negotiations with Russia, and will take place on October 30, from 4-5:30 pm at the Banatao Auditorium at UC Berkeley. You can register for that event today.
Stay tuned for updates from this exciting week!
