Let’s Talk is a program to meet new friends, and explore different topics of international concern. In our penultimate session of the year we’ll be discussing international cooperation, allyship, and international exchange in preparation for NYU Ally Week. Come out to discuss your thoughts on international travel, cultural exchange, and politics!

Date: Wednesday, April 5, 2017
Time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm
Location: Pless Hall 3rd Floor Lounge
Details: Lunch is provided. Space is limited. To attend, please RSVP here.

Let’s Talk International is a semi-structured discussion group and safe space for study abroad returnees, international students, third culture kids, and anybody interested in international/intercultural experiences to explore topics such as identity development, cultural adjustment, cross-cultural relationships, and general navigation of life across cultures. 

While topics and short activities provide a framework, students drive the conversation in directions most relevant to them. Continued attendance is encouraged, though students are not required to attend all sessions.

On the national stage, we’re witnessing debates about facts pertaining to crowd size, climate change and more. How did we get here, and is there a way forward when we can’t agree on the facts?

Georges Lurcy Fellowship Program for Study in France

One dissertation fellowship will be awarded for one year in an amount to cover adequately educational costs, expenses of travel, and living expenses in France.  The student will be chosen without preference as to field of study or department, provided that the subject matter is uniquely French and requires study in France for an academic year.  Additional information about the Georges Lurcy Fellowship Program for Study in France is available here.
