CEPS Students and Alumni-

Greetings from Beijing where I am teaching a course as part of the SOE’s Intl Higher Education master’s program and where yesterday I had the chance to give a lecture on “the History of Emotions in Education” to a group of historians at Beijing Normal University.  Perhaps there’s an “Asia pivot” going on!  As we start off the Spring semester please come and join us for a CGSA organizing meeting on Monday January 13th 6-7pm in Lewis Towers 1030 [A.1.]  All CEPS students welcome — and alumni too!  We also have a great speaker coming in on February 17th [A.2.] so mark your calendars for that as well.  If you learn of events or opportunities that can be shared via this newsletter please email them to my graduate assistant David Boven at dboven@luc.edu.
