2018 Joint Area Centers Symposium, Mar. 29-30
Keynote Address: Tariq Ali- The Broken Ladder: The Global Left Fifty Years after 1968
March 29, 7:30pm
210 Levis Faculty Center
At the end of the Cold War, the notion of revolution seemed to have been placed among the relics of history. Francis Fukuyama’s “end of history” and Samuel Huntington’s “Clash of Civilizations” emerged as bold, alternative frameworks to imagine the course of history after the age of political revolutions had come to an end. Then, the so called Arab Springs and the re-emergence of radical narratives of transformation, from Ukraine to Venezuela, have forced intellectuals and politicians to reconsider the actuality and the meaning of revolutions in the age of globalization.
Joint Area Centers Symposium (JACS)-"Revolutions: Past and Futures of Radical transformations"
March 30, 9:30am-6:30pm
Levis Faculty Center, Music Room
The symposium will be articulated around 4 themes: 1) religion and revolution, 2) anti-colonialism, 3) violence and transformation, and 4) gender, race, minorities and revolution. The goal of the symposium is to bring experts from different disciplines and different geographical areas to articulate the productiveness or the anachronism of the concept of revolution in multiple cultural contexts. Scholars from and experts on China, India, Latin America, Europe and Africa will provide a truly transnational perspective to the symposium.

WGGP Gender Relations in International Development Graduate Minor
WGGP offers a graduate minor in Gender Relations in International Development (GRID). The GRID interdisciplinary minor is designed to give students the analytical and empirical skills needed to address global human security and gender equity issues in research and policy analysis, as well as daily life. In this age of global economic transformation, it is especially necessary for researchers and practitioners to examine who gains and who loses from new policies, to assess the disparities in the impacts of reforms on women, men, and children, and to study the successful strategies and policies that appear.
To learn more about the GRID minor, please contact Anita Kaiser at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 333-6221.
