Education Abroad Expo @ Breslin Center
Oct 7 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Education Abroad Expo is a comprehensive information event for anyone interested in learning more about the many exciting education abroad opportunities available at Michigan State University.

More than 150 exhibits displaying information about MSU’s wide variety of programs and support services will be available for students to browse and ask questions.

If you’ve ever thought about international study, the Education Abroad Expo is the perfect place to begin your search.

After more than a year of travel restrictions and canceled plans, the Office for Education Abroad is excited to announce the Education Abroad Expo is back!

Participation in education abroad IS possible, both in-person and virtually, with some limitations for on-site activities. Flexibility has always been a benefit of education abroad and that skill will be put to use more than ever as we move forward in the coming year.

Now is a great time to begin to planning for a future program and become excited about the benefits of global learning.

Oct 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Online Lecture--Mercenaries and Missionaries: When Global Capitalism Meets Global Catholicism @ Online event

American Catholic Thought and Culture Endowed Lecture

Guest Speaker: Brandon Vaidyanathan, Ph.D

 

Mercenaries and Missionaries: When Global Capitalism Meets Global Catholicism

What happens when new cultures of capitalism and Christianity spread to rapidly globalizing contexts? Drawing on 200 interviews and 12 months of participant observation in Bangalore and Dubai, Brandon Vaidyanathan uncovers a curious symbiosis between the apprehensive individualism of global corporations and the therapeutic individualism of Charismatic Catholicism. He identifies three mechanisms underlying these modes of individualism, and discusses how they help us understand the power of culture in the context of global Catholicism.

This FREE online webinar will include opportunities for questions and answers.
