Friday June 17th @ 9 pm (PDT) on Zoom
The annual meeting of the international global studies consortium will be held on zoom this year organized at four different time zones around the world (US West Coast and East Coast, Europe and Asia). This will make it accessible to the more than 60 member graduate programs from Shanghai to Cairo and beyond. UCSB figures prominently in the program, and I hope you’ll log on.
The opening session at 9pm (PDT) Friday June 17 is based in Santa Barbara with an opening presentation on “Challenges to Global Studies in 2022” by Manoranjan Mohanty, former chair of political science at Delhi University, and former UCSB global studies visiting faculty. This will be followed at 10pm with two panels organized by Sophia University in Tokyo focusing on graduate programs of global studies. At midnight Aarhus Univ in Denmark has organized two panels on populism and the pandemic, and at 7am the next morning (Saturday June 18) the last two panels will focus on endangered scholars and globalizing global studies. I’ll moderate the last panel and Ricado Jacobs of the UCSB faculty will be one of the panel members. The attached flyer gives the schedule. Further info and a link to register (and then receive the zoom link to long on to the webinar) is on the GS Consortium website: http://globalstudiesconsortium.org
All UCSB faculty, staff, and grad students are welcome to log on. Come see how global studies is done in other parts of the world. We look forward to seeing you at this global event!
