This purpose of this page is to give a sense of what I do outside the classroom. It is not a complete catalogue of external events. Instead it is a random assortment of speeches, roundtables, debates, and interviews where I was able to find either videos or pictures. In each case, I try to give an indication of the event and my contribution. The list is in reverse chronological order.
