International Scholarly Conversations
The Ithaca College Honors Program has a global focus. Every year we sponsor international scholars to come to Ithaca and to teach in honors. In addition, honors offers a seminar each year called the International Scholarly Conversation; this seminar was first directed by Professor Rachel Wagner in fall 2011. This seminar brings in a series of prominent international scholars who work in a wide variety of disciplines. Before each scholar comes to campus the seminar reads key works that contextualizes their visit. As an ongoing project, the seminar probes the dialectical relationship between the cosmopolitan and particular cultures within which international scholars inevitably work.
