Hello everyone,
I extend a warm invitation to all MSA members and their friends to attend the events organized through the International Relations section of the MSA in Long Beach 2007.  

First, I list the Open Forum venue and the IR Business Meeting agenda.  Below that, I mention just two events related to transnationalism and geographies in which IR is represented.  

I?m also happy to note, in the full MSA program, the many, many panels that connect to the vocabularies of internationalism, transnationalism, and global/local geographies.  Thank you colleagues! and see you atleast at the few listed here.  

Please feel free to stop me and share your thoughts at any time during the conference?in the corridors, at thresholds of rooms, and at the reception.

Best regards,
Sonita Sarker
Chair, International Relations at MSA
