Not since the 1970s have global tensions and conflict reached such intensity. The U.S. and Russia almost seem to be replaying the Cold War. Disputes between America and China have escalated. The Middle East is in turmoil, as internal and cross-border wars rage from Libya to the Persian Gulf. Will these conflicts grow? Does peace have a chance? How will America's world position be affected? Who will be the winners and the losers? Are we beginning a new era of global disorder? Join Ralph Buultjens, historian, author, recipient of the Toynbee Prize in Social Sciences, and longtime faculty member of the NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs (CGA), who will provide insight and a special preview of his popular course "World Politics." This lecture, part of the Center for Global Affairs 10th anniversary celebrations, will probe the critical global issues of the day and will offer a taste of the thought-provoking and significant topics covered in CGA classes. Seats are limited. Register today! scps.nyu.edu/cga/worldpolitics

Peter Cincotti, singer- songwriter-pianist and native New Yorker, began playing piano at the age of three. By the age of 18 he was being called “one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation” by the New York Times.

Hailed as “the rebirth of cool” by Elle magazine, Peter explores musical styles that blend pop, rock, blues and jazz, infusing each new song he writes with originality and startling energy.
