An informal discussion of perspectives on anti-globalization as it impacts on teaching, curriculum, and the many institutional and broader national cultures within which global studies programs are embedded. How are globalization’s “losers” affecting the shape and prospects of global studies programs today?

Monitoring Global Studies graduates’ career trajectories and academic placements may provide the GSC with data that can be used to evaluate our programs’ performance and to produce a valuable service to our members. Parallel to tracking graduate career paths is the issue of student participation at GSC meetings given that representation in our membership structure is institutional, not individual. Following on from last year’s meeting, this session welcomes thoughts on discussion points like: If the GSC should gather statistics to track GS graduate career trajectories, how should this be organized, and by whom? What would be the main purpose of graduate student participation at annual meetings? What alternatives might there be to direct student participation annually?
