Disclaimer: My department i.e. East Asia Program organized this event. So I'm biased. But I really enjoyed Ken Liu's engaging style and insightful presentation on translation, Chinese science fiction and the power dynamics between Chinese and western sci-fi fantasy. His talk reveals the microagressions that abound in literature and in reaction to literature.

It was a truly great talk on all the complexities of translation as an act and how it is influenced by historical and cultural power dynamics.

Seemed very short, not staff specific. We all know that if it weren't for the students, there would be no staff. It would be nice to hear what our organization is doing for staff.
I think that Cornell as a whole needs to really think about that question that was asked about analytical employees. Do some research and see what the global community is talking about when it comes to technology advances and helping your staff keep up. Cornell is being left in the dust on a lot of topics. Try looking into the company 'A Great Place to Work'. You might learn something about how to keep your worker bees happy.
She seemed in a hurry to get out of there.

I walked away from President Pollack's address with enthusiasm and excitement about her leadership for Cornell. I was specifically happy to hear that progress is being made with the President's Task Force addressing bigotry and intolerance. President Pollack came across as a leader who will inspire those around her and she certainly inspired me to take care of my staff and responsibilities - exciting times for Cornell!
