Travel Writer Pico
Iyer to Kick Off Weissman Center Series
A little more than
a year has passed since the attacks on the World Trade Center
and the Pentagon, but anxieties about safety still trouble many
would-be travelers. While we fret, essayist and inveterate voyager
Pico Iyer urges us to continue to explore, arguing that travel
has taken on a new necessity since last September. "Travel,"
writes Iyer in Time magazine, "is how we put a face on the
Other and step a little beyond our secondhand images of the alien.
It is, in fact, how we learn about the world and come to terms
(and sometimes peace) with it." more>
