When we bring speakers to campus for our student programs and public lectures, the Rockefeller Center tries to incorporate many different opportunities for students and speakers to engage in meaningful conversations. 

Very often, these opportunities include meals or coffee hour chats with our featured guests.  Students can sign up to attend these opportunities via our Eventbrite page.  We may also send specific invitations to a class or student group that has been identified by faculty and staff.

Is Israeli-Palestinian Peace Still Possible? Talk by key negotiator on Monday, Feb. 13th at 4 PM

Key negotiator between the Government of Israel and Hamas reveals the truth behind secret talks.

  • Can Israelis and Palestinians ever live in peace?
  • Can Palestinians make peace amongst themselves?
  • What role do secret talks play in solving these issues?

Twenty years of peace processes between Israelis and Palestinians have proved futile. Irreconcilable differences clog the channels of diplomacy. The Palestinian house is divided into two separate regimes. A right-wing religious government rules Israel. The United States is occupied with the upcoming presidential election and Europe is focused on recovery from financial collapse, leaving Israel and Palestine alone to achieve peace. Can the two parties do it by themselves?

Possible Presidential Candidate Fred Karger Visits Dartmouth

The Rockefeller  Center and the Dartmouth College Republicans recently welcomed Fred Karger for a talk titled “Where Have All the Moderates Gone?"

Fred Karger, who is seriously considering running for President on the Republican ticket in 2012, spoke about his experiences as a political consultant, as an activist, and finally an openly gay man. He described his experiences in the presidential campaigns of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and the recent movement for gay marriage across the nation. In particular, he described the development of a series of advertisements featuring the victims of Willie Horton during the Bush campaign. After that, Karger began to discuss the policies behind his possible presidential campaign as an independent Republican.
