Mind the Gap: An Intercultural Competence Workshop

In an increasingly global world, the term “intercultural competence” is commonly used, but what does it really mean? This workshop explores what intercultural competence is, how it benefits individuals and communities, and how we can grow our competencies. Participants will leave with a deepened awareness of how their own communication preferences can impact cross-cultural interactions.

The Malala Phenomenon: What Does it Mean for Girls’ Education Around the World?

September 19th, 2014, 5:00-7:00PM, Kimmel Center for University Life, Eisner & Lubin Auditorium RSVP Required

Moderated by Dana Burde, Assistant Professor of International Education, NYU Steinhardt

Panelists include:
Zama Coursen-Neff
Executive Director, Children’s Rights Division, Human Rights Watch
Shahla Hussain
Visiting Assistant Professor of History, Wheaton College
Jennie Matthew
New York Correspondent, AFP

Malala Yousafzai, the schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban, has become a symbol for girls’ education in the West. This panel will discuss the dichotomy of the West’s acclamation and the East’s mistrust of Malala’s actions and aims and the effects this has had on girl’s education world wide. Specifically, the panel aims to address the questions: What has or has not changed in the field of girls’ education? Has the number of NGO projects addressing girls’ education increased? Has the “Malala phenomenon” changed things for better or worse? What does Malala’s fame in the West mean for girls’ education around the world? What is next for girls’ education in Pakistan?
