WI-Global Awards for Spring 2009 Announced!

Global Studies and the Offices of the Dean of Students announce the WI-Global Awards for Spring 2009. 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.

Rebecca Screnock (Junior, International Studies) and John Tao (Junior, International Studies) are the recipients of the WI Global Forum Award for best posts on the topic—cultural purity and its discontents—and the way it shapes our understanding of the wider world. Both Rebecca and John will receive a $125 gift certificate to the DoIT Techstore.

We are suspending WI-Global with the completion of the Spring 2009 semester. We will, however, maintain the blog and invite continued discussion through comments on existing posts (which we will continue to moderate).
