Can’t be in Bloomington? Join Framing the Global virtually.

The Framing the Global conference begins Thursday in Bloomington. It features presentations from our Framing the Global fellows, some of whom you’ve met through our bi-weekly Q&A’s, as well as other scholars of Global Studies.

Featured talks will be delivered by New York University’s Arjun Appadurai, University of California Berkeley’s Gillian Hart, and Acumen Fund’s Yasmina Zaidman.

Presentations and talks will focus on the challenges of creating an interdisciplinary framework for Global Studies as well as the difficulty in moving away from traditional dichotomies. Scholars will also discuss what works for them.
