The interdisciplinary nature of the Global Studies curriculum prepares students to think holistically about transnational-scale problems and seeks to cultivate citizens of the world who are critically aware of and actively engaged in issues of global equity, sustainability and well-being.

CAS Dean's Lecture "Corruption, Ottoman Style" by Bogac Ergene

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Location: Memorial Lounge, Waterman
Description: We know corruption when we see it. Or do we? Professor Ergene will address how the Ottoman state and society defined political and administrative corruption.
