View the world through the eyes of our four presenters, all of whom have lived and/or worked in other countries of the world. The presentations will be given in this order:

  • Radmila Zuman – “Prague: The Golden City of a Thousand Spires.” Radmila is a native of the Czech Republic. She moved to Prague after she married. She frequently returns to Europe to visit her native land and other areas of Europe.
  • Eileen Raymond – “South Africa.” Eileen was a Fulbright Scholar from July 2009 to June 2010 at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. In 2011, she returned to South Africa for five more months. Her focus of study is on inclusive and special education.
  • Poojitha Yapa – “Sri Lanka: History and Geography.” Poojitha was born, raised and educated (through his bachelor’s degree) in Sri Lanka. He completed his M. Eng. in Thailand and his PhD at Clarkson. He has traveled extensively in the world, and has lived for long periods in several countries, including the US, in Potsdam. Poojitha teaches civil and environmental engineering at Clarkson University.
  • Helen Beckerhoff – “China: After You, Marco Polo.” Helen went to China to teach English for a year (1995-96). She returned to China a year later to visit her students and to take a trip down the Yangtze River before the Three Gorges Dam flooded the sites she wanted to see.
