The College of Social Sciences and Public Policy and the Center for Global Engagement present a talk by Anup Kumar, Associate Professor at Cleveland State University.

Kumar’s topic is a call to focus on the intersection of public diplomacy and international relations.

He is regularly featured in opinion and commentary articles on media and politics in the Indian news media. He also directs an international team of researchers on the interdisciplinary study of national and state-level Indian elections.
