Join the PCSC on Sunday, September 23, 2012 when Philip Seib '70 will talk to us about the subject of his new book, "Real-Time Diplomacy: Politics and Power in the Social Media Era".
In the book, Seib asks a vital question: How can any policymaker keep afloat in the flood of information coming from a vast number of sources? He considers this question in the context of the events in the Arab world that began in 2011, and argues that in a high-speed, media-centric world, conventional diplomacy may be an anachronism.
The event will be held at the Valley Hunt Club in Pasadena from 4 to 6 p.m. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will start at 4, with the talk at 5 p.m. Once again, Paul Haaga '70 is hosting the event, so all proceeds will go to the PCSC scholarship fund.
Philip Seib is a professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and is director of USC's Center on Public Diplomacy. He is the author and editor of many books, including "Headline Diplomacy", "The Global Journalist", "Beyond the Front Lines", "The Al Jazeera Effect", and "Toward a New Public Diplomacy".
