Four Evenings

Global Studies Center is partnering with Pittsburgh Arts and Lectures’ Ten Evenings lecture series, to host book discussions of the recent works of Ten Evenings authors prior to their public lectures at the Carnegie Music Hall.

These discussions, led by local faculty, will focus on how authors’ works of fiction and non-fiction help us to understand global processes and the connections, disruptions, inequalities, and opportunities they create. We will be giving out a limited number of FREE tickets to the author's lecture to those who attend the book discussion. Please save the dates for the Four Evenings and join us on Pitt’s campus as we discuss the works of:
