Cultural exchange is undergoing a subtle, yet profound, transformation. It is about making connections that stimulate long-term positive change not only in the perception of America abroad but also about understanding and engaging with conditions in other countries. “Globalization” is now one of the most common terms to describe how we interact with other countries in the 21st century. Perhaps a better term is “interdependence.” Interdependence helps us understand how we can have shared opportunities to participate and enjoy a genuine sense of belonging. Collaboration and cooperation are becoming the approaches of choice, replacing the pursuit of short-term exchange.
Registration is now closed.
The 2010 Barnett Symposium is generously supported by Lawrence and the late Isabel Barnett,
