My colleague (and past co-presenter), Bryan McAllister-Grande, Associate Director, Office of Global Affairs at Brandeis University, refers to the Global Brandeis Symposia as a form of "internationalization brainstorming" and are designed to "bring recognized scholars in different disciplines to campus to interact with faculty, students, and staff over major questions of global higher education." Following are links to pages for each of the three symposium where you can read more specifics as well as watch videos of the Keynote Addresses and interviews:
“The Global: Implications for Research & the Curriculum” held in April 2008 with the Keynote Address by Arjun Appadurai entitled “The Globalization of the American University”
“The Global New Knowledge Spaces and Places” held in November 2009 with the Keynote Address by Kris Olds entitled “Cross-Border Higher Education, Authoritarianism, and the Global Governance of Academic Freedom”
“The Global: Developing and Intercultural Mindset” held in March 2010 with Darla Deardorff leading a variety of workshops for faculty and staff as well as meeting with students.
