Dear Reader,

In the last few months, IRC members and friends have given us the chance to taste Italian, Indian, and Thai cuisine – at least virtually – and warm our ears up to the sounds of languages from around the globe. Do check out some newly added cooking classes and Lexicon: Bite-Size Language Intros in the weeks ahead on the calendar below.

We'll have some expert looks at timely issues in the coming days, too. Please join us tomorrow (Thursday) as we welcome Karl Matthias Klause, Head of the Economic Section of the German Embassy in Washington, who will explore how Germany and the U.S. have used innovation and cooperation in responding to Covid. Next Wednesday, July 1, historian Michael Kimmage and Vince Houghton, curator of the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C., will be in conversation on what happened to the foreign policy concept of the West. Both digital events are open to the public.

Below you'll see that the IRC has joined Instagram – do follow us there, and make sure you've found us on the other platforms included at the bottom of the newsletter. These are all great ways to stay up to date with the IRC and the international community in Kansas City.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Kind regards,

Matthew Hughes, Executive Director
