Please join us for a book talk by Dr. Rajika Bhandari who will discuss her new book America Calling: A Foreign Student in a Country of Possibility (release date: September 14). Among a list of “most anticipated books for the rest of 2021,” America Calling is both a deeply personal story of Bhandari’s search for her place and voice as an Indian-American immigrant, but also an unflinching and incisive analysis of America's relationship with the rest of the world through the most powerful tool of diplomacy: education. At a time of growing nationalism, a turning inward, and fear of the "other", the book is ultimately a call to action to keep America's borders and minds open.
Dr. Bhandari is an international higher education expert who served most recently as the President and CEO of the IC3 Institute, prior to which she spent over a decade at the Institute of International Education (IIE), where she led IIE’s research, impact and thought leadership activities, including the flagship Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange – the most definitive resource on international students and scholars at U.S. colleges and universities and Americans studying abroad.
Please register to join the event. Zoom meeting details will be provided upon registration.
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
