Global Salon Series

The Global Salon Series is brought to you by the USI Global Studies program. This series gets its name from the 17th century definition of a “salon,” a gathering where people come together to discuss and share knowledge of the social, cultural, political and philosophical ideas of the time. 

Founded in 2011, the series focuses on current global issues, providing students and the community with a richer understanding of international and global issues, while giving USI faculty the opportunity to share their current research with the public. It is comprised of three to four lectures per semester featuring USI faculty and community figures.
