Connect with students abroad to discuss important current issues such as the future of global education and American uprising in a global lens. Apply by December 6 to participate in a panel discussion between Princeton University students and your European peers. Participants will be eligible for future trip to Europe to continue dialogue in-person during the summer of 2021 (pending travel safety).
Dialogue Session Details:
The Future of Global Education - January 26, 2021 at 9 AM (EST)
The COVID-19 pandemic has destabilized higher education globally, impeding research cooperation across countries, and limiting travel and study between countries. Students face great uncertainties and decisions on tradeoffs between public health and education abroad, on the pursuit of knowledge and dangers of political instability, and on how closely tied education is to institutions, public financing, and international cooperation.
#BlackLivesMatter Through a Global Lens - January 28, 2021 at 1 PM (EST)
The current United States uprising focused, for now, on equality, justice, and civil rights – initiated largely by #BlackLivesMatter – is frequently compared with the protests of the Vietnam War in 1968. Yet recent uprisings such as in Greece (2012) against austerity policies, in France (2018) for economic justice, in Great Britain (2016) for Brexit against membership in Europe, in Ukraine (2013) the Euromaidan protests against corruption, in and against authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and Asia (the Arab Spring beginning in 2011, in Hong Kong and Thailand presently) tend to be ignored, whereas they might make more insightful contemporary comparisons and more effective protests. What comparative frames do Princeton students and their European counterparts see as most useful to understand their own activism and make it more effective?
