As a part of the ESC’s Year of Global Europe, the ESC will devote this session of its virtual roundtable series to discussing the history of world’s fairs and international expositions. The first of these massive events began in Europe in the nineteenth century and became a way for European nations to showcase technology and their imperial power. In the last century, non-European nations became active participants and hosts. Our panel of experts will explore this change over time and discuss the role of world’s fairs and international expositions yesterday and today. Audience participation is encouraged. To participate remotely, contact email@example.com

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an annual event since 2002 designed to provide undergraduate students, from the University of Pittsburgh and other colleges and universities, with advanced research experiences and opportunities to develop presentation skills. The event is open to undergraduates from all majors and institutions who have written a research paper from a social science, humanities, or business perspective focusing on the study of Eastern, Western, or Central Europe, the European Union, Russia, or Central Eurasia. The Symposium is held on the University of Pittsburgh-Oakland campus. After the initial submission of papers, selected participants are grouped into panels according to their research topics. The participants then give 10- to 15-minute presentations based on their research to a panel of faculty and graduate students. The presentations are open to the public.
