Asian male surplus topic of Kennedy Center lecture Sept. 17

A Brigham Young University political science professor will speak about Asia's male surplus problem Wednesday, Sept. 17, at noon in 238 Herald R. Clark Building on the Brigham Young University campus.

Valerie Hudson will discuss her research during a lecture titled "Bare Branches: Security Implications of Asia's Surplus Male Population" as part of the International Forum Series hosted by the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies.

Hudson's lecture will focus on the ramifications for societies in which birth trends and constraints cause a population to place more emphasis on producing male children than on producing a functional family.

Hudson graduated magna cum laude from BYU in 1978 and is the editor or author of six books and many articles on foreign policy analysis, national security policy and related topics. She received the Aaron Wildavsky Book Award for the best policy studies book published in 1993-94.

The lecture will be Webcast live at http://kennedy.byu.edu/events/index.html.

Contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652 for more information, or visit the Kennedy Center Web site at http://kennedy.byu.edu/events for archived lectures and a calendar of other upcoming events lectures.
