Announcing Our 2024
Summer Reading

Our work in Global Studies is deeply rooted in promoting human rights. Returning to our summer reading this year is Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson. Caste provides important historical context to understand the role of race, class, and caste play in society.

 

The new movie, Origin, based on the book has inspired our return to the book from a few years back. Our work with the book and visiting speakers will allow us to apply an anti-racist and inclusive lens to the work we do now and in the future.

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.  Check out our full list of events this year.
