Summer Reading- 2019
This summer, the Global Studies students will read The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down to explore the intersection between culture, global public health, and immigration.
This story of Lia Lee, a Hmong immigrant child with epilepsy, and her family, doctors and social workers will be the center of our work studying cultural competency.
We will also explore the history of the Hmong people, their role fighting with the US in the Vietnam War, and their immigration to the US as refugees. Check out some of our resources.
Global Studies Events
"An overarching theme throughout all of the events I attended this trimester seemed to be a call for love and compassion for all, and a plea for open dialogue and respect for all viewpoints." Sam V '18, Global Studies Diploma Student
The goal of the Global Studies Program is to develop active, engaged global citizens. To expose ourselves to new ideas and opinions, we host speakers at Watkinson School, Skype with experts around the world and travel to talks, plays, conferences and more.
