Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Following opening remarks by Peter Scoblic, the Executive Editor of the New Republic, the first part of this half-day event will look at the historical antecedents of the nuclear situation in India, Pakistan, China, and North Korea with a panel moderated by Patrick O’Meara and panelists Mike Robinson, Sumit Ganguly, and Robert Ross.
