AFLSE Boston: Important Chapter Updates

Our climate change-focused Leadership Luncheon with Dr. David Levy was great, not least because we had alumni visiting from Brazil, Denmark, Hong Kong, and Washington DC joined us, all sharing local and global perspectives, in the best LSE tradition. Of particular interest were details of exporting Danish expertise in wind energy globally, and the opportunities for collaboration between Massachusetts universities and the University of London system.

Our next event is a lecture and lunch with AFLSE Senior Lecturer Dr. N. Piers Ludlow on Wednesday 15 July. He will deliver "Finding Europe's Telephone Number: The Evolving Nature of Transatlantic Dialogue, 1945-1990", then open a lively discussion over a delicious 4-course meal.If you only want to attend the lecture please email boston@aflse.org. We will save you a seat, and payment is only needed if you stay for the luncheon discussion.

If you don't have time for lunch, join alumni and friends for the Third Thursday Social on the 16th, at the Times Irish Pub.

Join us on Friday 17 July for the Bon Voyage Reception at the British Consulate-General. This annual event features a spectacular view, splendid company, and traditional British fare.

New this year is the AFLSE Boston Family Picnic on Saturday the 18th.  Join alumni, friends and family along the Charles River in Cambridge. Note that we will be there if it's traditional British-weather (overcast and damp), but not if there's steady rain.

Note that in New Haven, Connecticut, the Yale Center for British Art has two exhibitions this summer. "Paintings from the Reign of Victoria: The Royal Holloway Collection, London" runs through 26 July. "Dalou in England: Portraits of Womanhood, 1871-1879" looks at four works by the French sculptor Jules Dalou executed during his British period.It runs through 23 August.

We are very close to winning additional Chapter funds through the challenge grant. UK matching grant contributions must be received on or before 31 July. Remember: it is the number of contributors that counts towards the goal, not the size of the contribution.
