Dr. James Person of the Wilson Center in Washington will be our opening speaker of the 2017 - 2018 WACC season on Monday, October 9th. Renovations on the Courvoisie Room at The Citadel Alumni Center have been completed and it will be available for the meeting.

Dr. Person's topic will be 'Understanding North Korea - Why does it risk annihilation by provoking nuclear confrontation with the U.S? How should we respond?'  He is Director of the Hyundai Motor - Korea Foundation Center for Korean History and Public Policy at the Wilson Center.  He established the North Korea International Documentation Project at the Center, and teaches modern Korean history at George Washington University.  He has published widely on the North Korean regime and appears frequently on major media regarding Korean issues.  Without a doubt, he is among the nation's leading experts on both Koreas.  

I hope you'll agree that this a highly topical subject!
