Upcoming events for Boston-area Ethnians

I just got the periodic notice of upcoming events in the mail from the Boston Network for International Development. Here are two that look like they might be especially interesting to readers of East Ethnia, if they are in the area:
Oct 19, 2005
4:00 p.m.

American Empire in Global Perspective.

The William E. Massey Sr. Lectures 2 of 3 - "Why America's Hegemony Differs from Britain's Empire."
(Program in the History of American Civilization) Eric Hobsbawm.

Location: Lowell Lecture Hall, Harvard University
17 Kirkland Street
Cambridge, MA 02138

Oct 24, 2005
4:15 p.m.

"The Making and Unmaking of Ethnic Boundaries."
Panel featuring Andreas Wimmer, University of California, Los Angeles, and other discussants.
Location: Harvard University, Center for European Studies (CES), Lower level conference room

Unfortunately they are set on days when I'm not in town, but if anyone attends, reports are welcome.
