Hot Topics/Global Perspectives provides a monthly forum for discussing how events hitting the headlines at the time – as well as others that aren’t but should be – relate to global and transnational processes. The hour-long discussions, facilitated by Global Studies faculty, are informal and designed for everyone at Pitt — students, staff, and faculty. Come share your thoughts and enrich your sense of what it means to think and act globally.
The discussions take place in 4217 Posvar from 4.30 to 5.30pm on the last Wednesday of each month in the fall and spring semesters -- in the fall, on Sept. 26, Oct. 31, and Nov. 28; in the spring, on Jan. 30, Feb. 27, and Mar. 27. Coffee, tea, and cookies will be served.
