The forum and reception will take place from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Grand Foyer of IU Auditorium.

Following Zaret's talk, there will be opportunities for questions and informal conversation with members of the IU delegation, who are especially eager to welcome those who have a continuing interest in Southeast Asia and its cultures.

IU President Michael McRobbie, accompanied by his wife, Laurie Burns McRobbie, and Zaret, visited Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia over 11 days in late May and early June, to strengthen IU's connections with leading universities, meet with political leaders and renew ties with IU alumni.

A blog, "IU Goes to Southeast Asia: Presidential Visit 2012," provides a thorough review of the delegation's activities.

The public event, organized by the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs and the ANU-IU Pan Asia Institute, will also be streamed live and archived for later viewing at
