      Julia Gillard former Prime Minister of Australia

      Engagement in the Asian Century; Opportunity of Our Lifetime

      The first female Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, began her political career as a university student leader.  At 37, she was elected to Parliament as a member of the Labor Party. In 2007 she became the first Deputy Prime Minister and in 2010, despite being in the minority, she was elected Prime Minister.  She recounts her tenure and the challenges of being a female leader in her autobiography, My Story.

      As leader of government she managed the 12th biggest economy in the world through the recent global financial crisis.  She is credited with a number of successes during her administration: in the health sector – reform in medical training, delivery of care, and insurance; in taxation – cuts for middle and low income citizens; in environment -a carbon tax exchange scheme; in technology – a national broadband network.

      Ms. Gillard developed Australia’s guiding policy paper, “Australia in the Asian Century.”    She will extend her knowledge of this 21st century challenge discussing the lessons essential to national success as we navigate the strategic, economic and leadership challenges a rising Asia presents.

            Jeremi Suri – Professor of Contemporary Politics and Foreign Policy | Author

            The Evolution of The American Presidency

            “We should research with monkish rigor, as we write (and lecture) with novelistic flair.”

            These words reflect Dr. Suri’s own personality and his approach to the study and understanding of the repercussions of historical trends on the modern world.  His academic work seeks to explain how war, migration, nation-building, and mobility through higher education have transformed the workings of power at the local and international levels.

            He is the author and editor of nine books on contemporary politics and foreign policy.  His most recent book is titled, The Impossible Presidency, The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office.  He discusses the transformation of the limited role the Founding Fathers envisioned of the office of president to its current status as the most powerful job in the world.

                  Dr. John Medina – Molecular Biologist | Brain Researcher | Professor | Author

                  Optimizing Brain Health Through Each Stage of Life

                  Dr. John Medina is a developmental molecular biologist, researcher, professor and the author of ten books. His New York Times best-seller, Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School has been celebrated as the standard handbook on understanding the brain and optimizing its performance. Dr. Medina’s focus is on the genes behind brain development and psychiatric conditions.

                  Dr. Medina’s gift is to bring the complexities of the workings of brain systems to life for non-scientists. He does this on his website where many aspects of brain health, including every chapter of Brain Rules, are explained and illustrated in short videos.

                  His extensive study of the developing brain has resulted in three recent books which further explore the brain’s life stages:  Brain Rules for Baby, Brain Rules for Aging Well, and Attack of the Teenage Brain!

                    Event Description

                    For centuries the trade routes of the Silk Road transmitted goods and culture between Asia, the Middle East, and Europe in one of the earliest examples of globalization. We explore East-West cultural exchange and influence in Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade and Zhao Jiping’s Pipa Concerto No. 2, featuring the extraordinary Wu Man. Missy Mazzoli’s musical love letter to Detroit, River Rouge Transfiguration, brings the theme of this concert home to the U.S. as we grapple with globalization’s cycles of change and rebirth.
