The IGC sponsors multiple on-going initiatives that bring the campus and wider community together to explore what it means to be a global citizen. We welcome your involvement and hope that you will join us in creating sustained and meaningful dialog. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The International Roundtable is a community-wide forum exploring critical international issues that takes place each October on campus. The Roundtable brings together students, scholars, practitioners, and community members from campus and around the world to engage in discussion and debate. Past themes have included global health and equity; globalization, food, and agriculture; children of the world; human rights, and the global environment.
- The Annan Institute for Global Citizenship, the American Studies Department, and the Latin American Studies Program announce a summer webinar series, Untangling Racial Politics and Ontologies: Local and Global Antagonisms and Possibilities. As the covid-19 pandemic has forced a radical re-making of how we work and live, what are possibilities for addressing the pandemic of violence (physical, political, economic, ideological) against Black and Brown people? The series looks at relationships between anti-Blackness, racism, and colonialism as it considers theory, embodied experience, and action in struggles for justice. To watch the first video in the three-part series, The Pandemic of Anti-Blackness, click here.
