...I'll be giving a lecture at the International House of the University of Chicago on May 6, starting at 4:30. Details here. The subject won't be the TSA! (Hint: Will be talking about relations with a very populous country whose name starts with C.)

Well, technically, I'll still be giving the lecture whether or not you're in Chicago. But if you're in the neighborhood, feel free to attend.
