DURHAM, N.H. -- The New Hampshire International Seminar Series at the University of New Hampshire wraps up Friday, April 7, with a lecture by Sarah Meiklejohn Terry, Tufts University political science Professor. Jeff Diefendorf, UNH professor of history, will lead the discussion.

Terry's talk, "Factors in a Successful Transition: Central Europe in Comparative Perspective," begins at 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building room 334. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 3:30 p.m. for refreshments with the presenter. The event is free and open to the public.

In addition to her faculty appointment at Tufts, Terry is a research associate at Harvard University's Davis Center for Russian Studies. She has also served on the International Research and Exchanges Board, the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies and the Council for International Exchange of Scholars, among numerous other academic advisory boards.

Terry's honors include the American Historical Association Prize in Modern European International History and several fellowships. She has published numerous articles in scholarly and mainstream press, including a book-length monograph scheduled for release this year and tentatively titled "Security and Cooperation in East Central Europe after the Cold War: Toward Pan-European Integration or Fragmentation."

Terry's concentration on the politics and economics of the Soviet empire have earned her wide recognition as a speaker and scholar, whether she's presenting to a Congressional sub- committee or an international conference of researchers.

The April 7 presentation is part of the UNH Center for International Education (CIE) lecture series, which asks the big-picture question, "Is the world really moving towards democracy?" The New Hampshire International Seminar Series is sponsored by CIE, with support from the Alumni Enrichment Fund, the Class of 1957, and the Yale-Maria Fund.
