Rejecting Globalization: The Rise Of Populism and Xenophobia in 2016

October 4
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Gregory Hall, Rm 100

Join us for a discussion that explores the ideological, political, and economic connections between increasingly strong populist and anti-globalization movements worldwide. Many of these political and social movements share characteristics such as a rejection of globalization, disengagement from global systems, anti-immigration fervor, and tendencies toward nationalistic rhetoric. The discussion features the following scholars who will discuss these trends and offer some insights based on their expertise.

Global Markets and Society Minor Information Session

October 6
2:00 pm - 2:30 pm
LAS Global Studies Conference Room

The Minor in Global Markets & Society builds a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences for the study of global business-society relations. You develop a holistic understanding of the forces shaping global markets through an interdisciplinary curriculum that integrates historical, cultural, political, economic, and geographic perspectives. You will study topics such as corporate social responsibility, fair trade, global supply chains, and sustainable business practices, among others.

Students interested in pursuing this minor should attend an upcoming information session. All information sessions are held in the LAS Global Studies Conference Room located at 703 S. Wright Street, 3rd floor (above Women's Resources Center).

Managing Your Copyrights: Retain the Rights Important to You

October 6
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Main Library, Rm 314

As scholars and researchers, we all create work in which we hold the copyright. When we publish that work, we often are asked to assign that copyright to the publisher. In some cases, this may mean you may lose the right to reuse your work or to make it available to colleagues or on the web. In this workshop, you will learn what rights you hold, how to read copyright transfer and license agreements, and how to approach retaining the rights most important to you.
