WI-Global Awards Announced!

Global Studies and the Offices of the Dean of Students announce the first WI-Global Awards for Spring Semester 2008. WI-Global engages UW-Madison undergraduates in issues related to globalization and its impact on the world's communities, cultures, literatures, and languages, as well as on systems of governance, exchange, education, and technologies. WI-Global has two different components: the WI-Global Forum and the WI-Global Paper Award.

Kristin Jokela (Sophomore, College of Letters & Science) is the recipient of the WI Global Forum Award for best posts on the topic—music—and the way it shapes our understanding of the wider world. Her posts reflect an engagement both with a wide range of music from around the world and the artistic, business, and governmental milieux in which contemporary musicians create and fans consume music. Jokela will receive a $125 gift certificate to the DoIT Techstore.

For more information on WI-Global, and the WI-Global Paper Award winners for Spring 2008 -- Rebecca Gilsdorf (Sophomore, College of Letters & Science) & Mark Thompson (Senior, College of Letters & Science) -- visit the WI-Global website.
