Spring Speaker Event with Prof. Paul Lubeck--Great Dinner + Thought-Provoking Talk

Each year the Boston Chapter of the UC Santa Cruz Alumni Association, aka the BSLUGS, look forward to hosting a faculty speaker for a dinner-talk event. This year we were very fortunate that the UCSC’s East Coast Regional Team made it possible for us to have a splendid speaker, Dr. Paul Lubeck, who dissected U.S. foreign policy in the Muslim world and clarified many of the complexities of that relationship for us. Our event was a huge success: 18 UCSC alums and friends gathered for dinner, conversation, and discussion at the home of Mary Jane and Peter Suzman in West Newton, Mass. The topic attracted BSLUGs who have never attended previous programs. Prof. Lubeck was a very engaging speaker. If the dinner hadn’t taken place on a week night, we would have been discussing Islamic culture and U.S. politics into the wee hours. We are very grateful to UCSC for providing us the star power for this event!
