Started by a former Raether postdoctoral fellow in Urban Studies at CUGS and a Trinity graduate in the Class of 2011 in 2009, the Global Vantage Point (GVP) series has already become a salient and lasting feature of CUGS’ operation and identity. While occasionally featuring outside speakers, the GVP series provides a platform primarily for Trinity faculty and students, especially the latter to present their research and engagement projects and academic work in progress. It has already hosted over 100 speakers since its inception. Recent speakers have talked about topics such as “Imaging Place and Time: The Politics of Temporality in the ‘New’ Detroit,”, “A Queer New York: Greenwich Village and Gay Manhattan,” and “The Impact of Tourism on Restaurants in Lhasa.” See below for  flyers about upcoming GVP lectures and talks for the coming academic year.
