Description

Nuclear Asia:
Prospects for Peace


Saturday, October 20, 2018
Metropolitan State University, St. Paul Campus
Room 101 and Lounge, Student Center

An Outreach Event held in conjunction with the MCAA
Free and Open to the Public

North Korea’s nuclear negotiations make the headlines regularly. However, North Korea is not the only country that poses a nuclear threat in Asia. The MCAA 2018 outreach program plans a public engagement event, a film and panel discussion program on the past, present, and future of nuclear weapons and technology in Asia. The event will take place in conjunction with the MCAA 2018 at Metropolitan State University. After showing recent documentaries, panelists – composed of scholars and civic organization leaders -- will present on North Korea, China, India, Pakistan, Hiroshima/Nagasaki, and peace education, and have an open discussion with the audience. A reception will follow in order to provide a space for community citizens, students, educators, and scholars to meet and continue discussion.

2:00-3:30 p.m. Film Screening and Discussion (Film directors will be present.)

3:30-5:30 p.m. Panel Discussion

  • Professor Jim Scheibel (Hamline University), former Mayor of Saint Paul, moderator
  • Professor Hangtae Cho (University of Minnesota) on North Korea
  • Professor Seunjoo Yoon (Carleton College) on China
  • Professor Amna Khalid (Carleton College) on India and Pakistan
  • JoAnn Blatchley (St. Paul-Nagasaki Sister City Committee) on peace activism
  • Caren Stelson (World Citizen, and author of Sachiko) on peace education
