Duke welcomed Dr. Hilary Kahn of Indiana University, to discuss her work in Global Studies and how she has begun to rethink this emerging field, on October 27.
Using Pacific Studies as her entry point, Dr. Kahn demonstrated the importance of rethinking binaries, particularly the dichotomy of global and area studies, and explored new ways to envision global studies and its impact. Drawing on her edited volume, Framing the Global: Entry Points for Research and on her own research as an ethnographer and international educator, Kahn shared insights into global scholarship and its broader role in the internationalization of curricula and campuses.
Dr. 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.
This event was sponsored by the Association of International Education Administrators headquartered at Duke University.
