America, American Studies, and American/Terran relations: Contested by the Global 

October 7th, 2013 
Place: Graduate School of Management Room 230 

The United States is a nation that has reckoned with its identity on the world stage. It has contributed to the support and production of international agreements and organizations while simultaneously struggling with its role as a global actor. The special role the United States has played in the global political economy makes its study a complex and multi-faceted problem. What are the essential components of American identity in its relationship to the planet? How will world history characterize the United States 100 years from now? To confront these questions, we will address larger questions about diaspora, diversity, and the import/export of American cultural values in a global context. This session will provide frames for understanding America’s complex relationship to the world, emphasizing major issues that may determine the future relationship between this complex nation and the planet itself. We will be joined by five scholars from the Palestinian Territories with research and professional interests in American Studies and related fields. We will conduct a one-and-a-half hour discussion with these scholars in an attempt to share ideas about how to study the United States in a global context.

World youth development and citizenship: a discussion 

October 10th, 2013 
 9:30am to 11:30am 
Place: Jackson Student Center 

The world’s youth are the most important part of a dynamic global environment. As we become conscious of globally derived problems, youth become the vehicle for building the social, cultural, and political circumstances to address these problems. This renders our children vulnerable to many new forces. We face new challenges as our youth develop “flexible citizenship” – occupying many worlds with many different social realities. This forum will discuss the way that we conceptualize youth development in a global context, focusing on the way that youth transforms the institutions that set the global agenda. We will be joined by five Open World Delegation scholars from Tajikistan with professional interests in youth development, human rights, and world society. We will engage in small exercises leading up to the forum that help us have a strong, multi-faceted discussion on October 10th.
