Students at the University of North Carolina live in an increasingly globalized society. It is crucial that they develop a fuller understanding of the variable nature of earth’s people and nations. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with its rich diversity of programs possessing a strong international focus and its strong commitment to study abroad, provides an exceptional learning environment for the study of these critical issues.

Message from the Chair

elizabeth-olson-largeThe spring semester seems to finally be holding the promise of warmer days, and the Curriculum in Global Studies is ready to meet the thaw with some exciting opportunities for students and the wider Carolina community. In April we will be co-sponsoring two “student’s choice” visiting lectures alongside of visits of other scholars from around the world. One of the highlights this month was a visit by Kevin “KAL”’ Kallaugher, whose illustrated lecture on “Political Cartooning after Charlie Hebdo” captivated the audience and attracted the attention of local mediDSC_0649a.

We have also been exploring new ways to support and encourage our undergraduate and graduate students with small grants and network-building opportunities within and beyond UNC. In addition to kick-starting collaboration with NC State, our first cohort of Masters students has successfully secured a range of competitive grant and study awards including the FLAS (Foreign Language Area Studies) fellowship. In the meantime, our faculty is engaging global audiences in scholarship and policy, producing new and unique research, and winning awards for teaching. We are especially looking forward to celebrating the graduation of the Class of 2015 on Sunday, May 10! (Be sure to check out the details for commencement on our website). – Elizabeth Olson
