Ever wonder what your colleagues across campus are working on, or for that matter, what your colleague down the hall is studying? Are you an historian looking to ask a question of a cosmologist? An anthropologist curious about critical theory? Or maybe you just want to relax with refreshments among friends...
Regardless of your motivation, we invite you to come to a new informal cross-campus seminar...
..."What's the Big Idea?"
What does a global village look like?
|Reflections on two decades of migration, social change, and political-economic transformations between Nepal and New York City. This would be a talk based on my long term and ongoing engagement with the region of Mustang, Nepal, and those from this region who have - through various immigration channels, for a range of reasons, and with fascinating twists and turns of identity, citizenship and belonging – been settling in New York, either temporarily or more permanently. The talk would also focus on what is happening as people recreate lives and maintain social relationships, households, and even ritual practices between Mustang and places in Brooklyn and Queens.|
