Being An American Abroad: Panel Discussion
Reem-Kayden Center Laszlo Z. Bito '60 Auditorium
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Are you studying abroad next term? Hoping to research or work abroad after graduation? Please join us for a candid discussion on preparing ourselves to be informed and respectful world citizens at a time of rising nationalism, stricter border controls, and a fraught American political and social landscape. Bring your questions and concerns and we'll talk about practical approaches for diffusing anxieties, maintaining situational awareness for personal safety, navigating identity in a new context, respecting host cultures, and seizing the opportunities to achieve rewarding experiences abroad. Our panelists include Dr. Frederic Hof, Ambassador-in-Residence at Bard; James Ketterer, Dean of International Studies; Harry Johnson '17 Watson Fellow; and Dr. Robyn Smyth, Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental and Urban Studies.

Time: 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
