How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

International Relations/Political Science to Partner in Europe-focused International Programs

March 24th, 2011

Boston University’s International Relations and Political Science departments have been named associate partners in a multimillion-euro project to establish the Erasmus Mundus joint doctorate program to be called Globalization, the EU, and Multilateralism (GEM).

GEM is funded by the Education, Audiovisual & Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) of the Commission of the European Communities under the Erasmus Mundus Framework Programme. The PhD program will be coordinated by the Free University of Brussels (ULB), with a consortium of six partner universities (ULB, Warwick, LUISS, Geneva, Fudan, and Waseda) and a number of associate partners, including Boston University.

The doctoral program will provide full three-year support for approximately nine PhD candidates annually and will feature shared training programs in support of international mobility actions, international seminars, and joint workshops. Boston University’s initial role in the program will be to vet candidates and participate in the mobility actions, seminars, and workshops
