011911CampusPeople_GauseDr. C.P. Gause (Education) presented his paper “One Nation, One World: The Rise of the Global Community” at The United States Meets Europe Weeklong Seminar and Conference earlier this month in New York. Gause’s paper, taken from his latest book, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Education: A Voice from the Margins” (Sense Publishers, 2010), spoke to how the element of fear continues to prevent the United States from engaging in domestic and international diplomacy. According to Gause, “the United States is more ideologically, philosophically, culturally, linguistically, racially, and ethnically diverse than she has been in any given point in her history; however, many of her citizens are currently living in a state of fear. What stands out the most is how we allow this fear to take over our lives in multiple ways.” The Institute for Cultural Diplomacy sponsored the weeklong seminar.
