On Friday, May 10 at 7:00 pm, there is the Exhibition Opening and Lecture with Colette Mazzucelli (New York University) and Erwan Lagadec (George Washington University).

Her graduate studies at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University (MALD, 1987), the Center for European Studies, Harvard University, and the Department of Government, Georgetown University (PhD, 1996), also reflect her engagement in the transatlantic community. Dr. Mazzucelli’s doctoral research, conducted as a Fulbright Scholar at the Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po) Paris in 1991, contributed to the volume France and Germany at Maastricht Politics and Negotiations to Create the European Union (Routledge, 1999; Kindle Edition, 2007). In 1992-93, she assisted with the ratification of the Treaty on European Union in the Federal Republic of Germany as a Bosch Foundation Fellow. She is the recipient of 11 national and international fellowships in 7 countries, including Bosch, Fulbright, and Rotary.

His latest book, Transatlantic Relations in the 21st Century: Europe, America, and the Rise of the Rest (Routledge, 2012) offers an overview of the interface between European integration, Transatlantic relations, and the ’rise of the rest’ in the early 21st century.
