Global Conversations 2014

Global Conversations, sponsored by Santander Bank, are intended to spark new dialogue around “big picture” global themes. Join us in hearing from faculty experts from BU and beyond for an interdisciplinary, interactive, and informal look at four important issues affecting our world. Global Conversations are hosted by Global Programs, in partnership with departments and centers across the Charles River and Medical Campuses.

Seating is limited but open to all BU faculty, staff, and students. Each event will include lunch followed by a one-hour panel conversation. Register to attend at the individual links below.
