Book Talk with Dr. Anu Taranath | Tue, Nov 30, 5:30 – 6:30pm
Dr. Anu Taranath is a speaker, facilitator, educator and author. Join us for this special gathering online as we talk about Dr. Anu’s book “Beyond Guilt Trips” and discuss mindful travel in an unequal world. Dr. Anu’s work explore the thought provoking questions of identity, race, and difference to gain understanding on uncomfortable feelings of who we are, where we come from, and how much we have.
Global and Regional Studies Zoom Info Session | Wed, Dec 1, 2 – 3pm
Join us for an info session to learn about the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies’ new general major, “Global and Regional Studies.” This major is open to all students in good academic standing and can be declared immediately. Global and Regional Studies is an excellent choice for students who are interested in learning about how world cultures and politics are influenced by major events such as the rise of nationalism, globalization, and climate events. Our students learn how to create policies and solutions that could have a positive impact on future international developments and events.
