Lecture to examine Chinese influence in Latin America

Tony Motley, former ambassador to Brazil and assistant secretary of state for inter-american affairs, will address Citadel cadets at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4 in Bond Hall Auditorium (Room 165).

Motley’s visit is hosted by the Student Association for Inter-American Affairs and The Citadel chapter of Sigma Delta Pi, the National Spanish Honor Society. The lecture is free and open to the public.

A 1960 Citadel graduate and a distinguished Citadel alumnus, Motley will lecture on China’s influence in Latin America and its implications for inter-American policy. Motley served in the U.S. Air Force from 1960 to 1970 and as the U.S. ambassador to Brazil and as the assistant secretary of state for inter-American affairs during the Reagan administration. Mr. Motley is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and serves on the executive committee of the American Academy of Diplomacy Board of Directors.

The Student Association for Inter-American Affairs seeks to foster interest and understanding of U.S.-Latin American affairs at The Citadel. In spring 2011, the association will publish the inaugural issue of “The Hemispheric Review,” a bilingual undergraduate journal for U.S-Latin American affairs.
