Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is speaking at UNH later this month. Secretary Kissinger is giving a live webcast at the University’s 10th Annual China Town Hall on October 18. The 7pm event at the Murland Hall’s Richards Auditorium is free and open to the public.
Kissinger served as the US National Security Advisor from 1969-1975 and was the 56th Secretary of State serving from 1973-1977. He was the first major American representative to meet with Chairman Mao Zedong in July of 1971 which led to President Nixon’s trip to China in 1972 and diplomatic recognition in 1979. Kissinger received the Noble Peace Prize in 1973.
After the live webcast, Douglas G. Spelman will comment on Kissinger’s talk and provide his personal insights on current Sino-American relations.
China Town Hall is sponsored by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, the UNH Department of Political Science, and the UNH Asian Studies program
