The World on Wednesday (WOW) lecture series is currently seeking faculty, staff, and outside experts to talk to the CSI community about ideas and experiences that lead to an increased awareness and understanding of global issues. WOW is especially intended to inspire students to want to learn more about the world during their time at CSI. Discussions in the series serve to introduce and encourage students to participate in the wide range of study abroad programs available to them through the Center for International Service.

Speakers talk about their own personal experience and present their topics in an informal style, including audio-visuals as appropriate. Past presenters have represented the disciplines of history, economics, geography, political science, health sciences, cinema studies, environmental science, business, and literature. Discussions have focused on topics related to China, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, South Africa, and other countries.

World on Wednesday lectures are held on Wednesdays from 12:20pm to 1:10pm in the Campus Center (Building 1C).

If you wish to participate or to suggest another speaker, please contact Winnie Brophy at the Center for International Service at 718.982.2100 or
