John Hope Franklin: The Global Scholar

September 16, 2020 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

In the third installment of this series, we will rebroadcast a 2016 talk by John Gartrell who reflected on Dr. John Hope Franklin's international influence and scholarship and shared information about archival documents available through the John Hope Franklin Research Center. The discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Giovanni Zanalda, Director, DUCIGS.

The John Hope Franklin Center (JHFC) and the Duke Center for International and Global Studies (DUCIGS) are launching the 2020/2021 Wednesdays at the Center series virtually. The Wednesdays at the Center series, the John Hope Franklin Center, and the international area study centers in DUCIGS have worked in the past to address issues of racism, inequality, and marginalization both globally and locally. This year, we will intensify our focus on anti-racism under the rubric: JHF | Global Anti-Racism (histories of action).
