International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education is part of an effort to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. Join Barnard's Office of International Programs, in collaboration with other campus offices, departments, and centers, to celebrate Barnard's international community!
Come by our table outside Liz’s Place 11am-2pm every day to see what’s going on at Barnard internationally! Sample cuisines from a different country each day in Hewitt and the Diana Café, and taste coffees from around the world at Liz’s place.
Professor Paul Martin and the Office of International Programs will host an informal discussion about international human rights. The conversation will cover the topic of replacing secularism with international human rights and the role of human rights in re-building communities recovering from conflict. We encourage all students to come and share their thoughts on this issue. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending so we can order the correct amount of food.

How have new means of communication transformed the connections between migrants and their homelands? While many point optimistically to a “death of distance,” wherein new and proliferating technologies supposedly bring immigrants ever-closer to their families, data shows that communications between migrants and loved ones at home remain erratic and vulnerable. Roger Waldinger, distinguished professor of sociology at UCLA, is the author of six books on international migration.

The Barnard International Artists series presents two artists who have made a unique film about a suburb of Beijing that has become a haven for Chinese contemporary artists. Xu Xing, an eminent Chinese writer turned filmmaker, and Andrea Cavazzuti, an Italian filmmaker living and working in Beijing for the past 30 years, have come together to make 5+5, a film that is at once poignant, moving and humorous. It offers an unprecedented look into this vibrant and avant-garde contemporary art scene hidden behind China’s formal facade. At the heart of the film is Mr Jin, a taxi driver and modern-day Don Quixote, who drives artists around the city. It is through his perspective that we are offered a window into both contemporary China and, more universally, the condition of the artist in the modern world. Learn more.
