Connecting with people from around the world is much easier now than it has ever been before. With the internet, phones, and fast travel, we can build relationships and networks in new ways - breaking through the barriers of national boundaries.

Join the conversation as we kick off the series with Lauren Copeland, a graduate student from the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies, Pathmanesan Sanmugeswaran, a graduate student in Anthropology, and Agata Grzelczak, a graduate student in Hispanic Studies, as they interview Nina Glick-Schiller, one of the pioneers of transnational studies.
