The Center’s activities aim to advance interdisciplinary scholarship, programs of study, and transnational linkages by creating annual programming around a relevant global or international theme. Housed in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the Center supports and often co-sponsors the activities of area studies programs devoted to multiple geographic regions, while emphasizing thematic concerns that span the globe.
