President of Iceland to Speak at Cornell in T-minus Two Hours

10421239_10152851517090132_6600294053230348364_nIn less than two hours, Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson, the fifth president of Iceland, will deliver a talk at Cornell’s Einaudi Center, as part of the Foreign Policy Distinguished Speaker Series.

Since I have a very personal academic connection to Iceland, I will be viewing the live stream of the speech at CornellCast’s webpage, and I invite you to do the same! The site helpfully provides a countdown of the talk for those of us in diverse time zones. 

If you want to read some of my old posts on a very specific part of Iceland’s history that has only a little bit to do with President Ólafur’s talk today, you can check out the most recent in a series of Iceland posts, my first post on the topic, and the lists of posts that are in Raxa Collective’s Iceland category, or tagged with Iceland.
