IR Conference on South Asia Needs Student Assistance!

The recently formed, Wesleyan International Relations Association (WIRA), would like to announce its plans to organize its prospective inaugural International Relations conference. WIRA plans to hosts International Relations Conferences annually, focused on a different region of the world each year, to give Wesleyan students, faculty, administration and community a chance to hear from specialists on the specific region. This year, WIRA, in collaboration with the Wesleyan Pakistan Flood Relief Initiative and South Asian Studies Certificate Faculty have decided to organize the conference on “Deciphering Pakistan and US-Pak Relations.” As part of this conference, we will invite academics, diplomats and journalists from all over the world to come to Wesleyan University and address the topic from their specific lens of expertise. Given the scale of the conference, we will require considerable planning for it. Thus, we would like to invite the Wesleyan student body to join the Organizing Team for Wesleyan’s first International Relations Conference, tentatively planned for 1st October 2011.

If you are interested in any of the aforementioned positions, please send an e-mail to with your name, the position (if applicable) that you are interested in and your relevant background (just a few sentences should suffice).

If you have any questions, concerns or if you require more information about the positions/conference, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail at I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you will join us in organizing what promises to be a highly informative and exciting conference!
