Greetings from the Global Studies Collective! Please save the date(s) for the following events:
Lit Goes Global: Worlding the Great Books
with Christopher Leydon (Ph.D., Comp. Lit., CUNY Graduate Center)
American Chinese: The Life of Jade Snow Wong
with Jaime Cleland (Ph.D.,English, CUNY Graduate Center)
These two talks will take place respectively on Friday, 5 April 2013 in Room 5489 and Friday, 26 April 2013 in Room 5409; both lectures will begin at 6 pm. I will send out
reminders about both events later on in the semester, but in order to get a sense of how much food we’ll need to order for these events, we would appreciate it if you could send
an RSVP for either or both lectures to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, if you are a currently matriculated doctoral student at the GC, it would be greatly appreciated if you would sign our electronic roster for the spring, 2013 semester (click on the following link):
If you have any questions about our group, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
Hoping to seeing you in April,
Cori L. Gabbard, 2012-13 chair of the Global Studies Collective*
*The purpose of the Global Studies Collective, one of the student groups at the GC, is to provide “members of the Graduate Center community with an inter-disciplinary forum
for research, discussion, and networking relating to scholarly and professional pursuits on issues of contemporary international and global relevance” by convening “student[s] and faculty from various departments. . . .to discuss issues of globalization, development,
diplomacy, human rights, migration and diaspora(s) and transnationalism” (Global Studies Collective Mission Statement). Although the Global Studies Collective has traditionally attracted student members from the departments of Anthropology, Economics, History, Political Science, and Sociology, we welcome students from all disciplines at the
GC with an interest in these topics to join us,and indeed, our two upcoming events should be of particular interest to those in the humanities.
