CGII launches brown bag lecture series

CGII Brown Bag 2021

In an effort to highlight global research and the vibrant global scholar community at UVA, Center for Global Inquiry + Innovation in the Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs has announced a new brown bag lunch series starting this fall.

The series will host a monthly conversation with CGII grantees around research of a global topic.

“I am so excited to start this series and hope that it will shine a light on the amazing global and interdisciplinary work happening at UVA,” said Brian Owensby, Director of CGII. “Over the course of the last decade, CGII has given grants for global research to scholars and groups who have tackled research around environment, economic issues, global media, sounds studies and many other topics across all different schools. These projects have emphasized novel methodologies, collaborative approaches and interdisciplinary ways of thinking.This series will showcase some of that work.”
