Thinking Globally Discussion Series

thinking globally header

Thinking Globally is a discussion series sponsored by Modern Languages and Literatures. Sessions are hosted by faculty, staff, students, and community members who are native or near-native speakers of world languages and/or have experience living in another country.

Our goal is to provide a space for open dialogue about how language and culture inform the ways we think and act; and to foster cultural humility and cross-cultural understanding.

We typically have 2-3 discussions each semester. Some of the topics previously covered:

  • Culture shock
  • Love & intimacy
  • Language & personality
  • Privacy & personal space
  • Food & the table
  • Health & well being
  • Humor
  • Death & dying
  • Cultural concepts of time

Check for upcoming sessions in: the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) calendar, MLL's digital bulletin board- The Happenings, and the Language Resource Center (LRC) calendar.

Please contact us if you want to suggest a topic or if you're interested in hosting a session: [email protected]
