Darryl Flaherty, left, assistant professor of history, and Paul Solano,
associate professor of urban affairs and public policy, have been
selected to attend the Salzburg Global Seminar, which challenges present
and future leaders to solve global issues.
12:48 p.m., May 28, 2010----University of Delaware
professors Darryl Flaherty and Paul Solano are among the leading
thinkers around the globe who have been selected to participate in Salzburg Global Seminar programs this year.
The Salzburg Global Seminar is a non-governmental organization that
challenges present and future leaders to solve issues of global concern.
Attendees meet for intensive, week-long discussions of major
international issues at the Schloss Leopoldskron, a rococo palace in
Salzburg, Austria, that was the inspiration for a number of settings in
the film The Sound of Music.
More than 60 UD faculty have been selected to attend, and many have
been invited back to lead programs, since the Salzburg Global Seminar's
inception in 1947. In 2008, Stephen Salyer, Salzburg Seminar president
and CEO, and UD President Patrick Harker signed an agreement affirming and enhancing the long-term collaboration.
The University of Delaware has a long-time relationship with the
Salzburg Global Seminar, a general agreement with Salzburg, and more
than 60 faculty alumni -- this program is really important to us and
critical to the ongoing globalization of our campus, says Lesa
Griffiths, director of UD's Institute for Global Studies.
Flaherty, assistant professor of history
at UD, will participate in Colleges and Universities as Sites of
Global Citizenship, July 9-16. Flaherty specializes in Japanese social
and political history and teaches courses in East Asian and world
As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, the challenge
remains -- how to cultivate global perspectives among scholars trained
to think nationally, Flaherty notes. In terms of teaching, global
awareness can help students better understand their life choices --
including consumption and career choices -- in a global context.
Besides enriching his approach to East Asia in world history,
Flaherty says the Salzburg Global Seminar will yield other benefits,
ranging from helping him refine ideas for a graduate course in world
history now in development, to increasing understanding of how the
University fits into the world community as a global citizen.
Solano, associate professor of urban affairs and public policy,
will participate in Reforming Health Care: Maintaining Social
Solidarity and Quality in the Face of Economic, Health, and Social
Challenges, Nov. 7-12.

Built in the 18th century, the Schloss Leopoldskron (Leopoldskron
Palace) in Salzburg, Austria, has been the home of the Salzburg Global
Seminar since 1947. The rococo palace and its grounds were the
inspiration for a number of settings in "The Sound of Music."
Since I am a health economist and public finance specialist, these
sessions should contribute an international perspective and be very
beneficial to both my teaching/curriculum and research roles within the
University, says Solano, who is director of the Health Services Policy
Research Group in the School of Urban Affairs and Public Policy. Solano
also is a participant in the Delaware Health Sciences Alliance,
a collaboration of UD, Christiana Care Health System, Nemours, and
Thomas Jefferson University, focused on the improvement of health and
health services for all Delawareans.
Solano says he hopes to learn more about how other governments have
chosen to provide access to health care, including financing mechanisms
they employ and how the economy has impacted service delivery, and how
health outcomes of countries are affected by their health care system.
Founded by three Harvard alumni and chartered in the United States,
the Salzburg Global Seminar convenes imaginative thinkers from different
cultures and institutions, organizes problem-solving initiatives,
supports leadership development, and engages opinion-makers through
active communication networks, all in partnership with leading
institutions from around the world and across different sectors of
UD has been a participant since 1977, when Arno Loessner, associate
professor emeritus of urban affairs and public policy, became the first
faculty member to attend the Salzburg Global Seminar.
