The Capstone Colloquium is comprised of a series of lectures, presentations, and other exercises which are designed to introduce students to a wide range of global affairs subjects not normally covered in the mandatory Areas of Inquiry (AIs)/Core Subjects or electives. Students will meet practitioners, academics, and policy makers and are encouraged to consider the relationships between the various divergent subjects and reflect on the interdisciplinary aspects of global affairs generally. How, for example, does social media impact the way global policy is effected? How does international business engage with the work of non- governmental organizations? What is the purpose of ethnic narratives and how do they affect the motivation of groups involved in conflict?
The sessions will be held on every Wednesday at the Dana room, Dana Library
