Re-framing Global Studies: Oceans, Islands, ands Impact.

October 27, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Dr. Hilary Khan of Indiana University as she she discusses her work in Global Studies and how she has begun to rethink this emerging field. Using Pacific Studies as her entry point, Dr. Kahn will demonstrate the importance of rethinking binaries, particularly the dichotomy of global and area studies, and will explore new ways to envision global studies and its impact. Based on Framing the Global: Entry Points for Research (Indiana University Press, 2014), edited by Hilary Kahn and with a forward by Saskia Sassen, and her own research as an ethnographer and international educator, she will share insights into global scholarship and its broader role in the internationalization of curricula and campuses.

Dr. Hilary Kahn is Assistant Dean for Strategic Collaborations and Director of the Center for the Study of Global Change in the School of Global and International Studies at Indiana University. She is on the AIEA Executive Board and the AAC&U Global Learning Advisory Board. She is the author of articles and books and has spent the last decade advancing comprehensive and curriculum internationalization at colleges and universities. She is one of the nation’s foremost experts on curricular internationalization. Professor Kahn has a Ph.D. in Anthropology.

The event will take place in the John Hope Franklin Center Ahmadieh Family Conference Hall (Room 240) on the Duke University campus and will conclude with a reception in room 130 of the John Hope Franklin Center off the gallery.
