FRONTIERE Newsletter

As the summer winds down and we get into the swing of a new school year, we are happy to present the summer edition of FRONTIERE. This issue highlights several amazing events and initiatives organized by department members over the last year — many of which will continue into the future, and all of which have attracted wide and diverse audiences — including The Global Mediterranean Project and the upcoming Mediterranean Seminar taking place at Ohio State in Spring 2020, spearheaded by postdoctoral researcher Harry Kashdan; the Italian Cinema(s) Abroad conference, which brought participants to Ohio State from universities throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy and Jerusalem; the Borders in Motion Symposium organized by Lucille Toth and Johanna Sellman, which is an extension of Toth’s large scale engagement project On Board(hers); and the Global Citizen Summer Camp organized by Dr. Janice Aski which brought roughly 60 middle schoolers to Ohio State for a week, and will be repeated next summer.
