The Global Turn: Thinking About the World from a Global Perspective

With Eve Darian-Smith, professor of anthropology.

What does it mean to think globally? How does such thinking further our understanding of the world, while also challenging our basic assumptions? This talk explores what we mean by taking a "global turn" within academia, and how this may change the way we produce knowledge and think about solutions to the world's most pressing issues.
