Global Studies in the Arts and Humanities invites faculty to affiliate with the program.  GSAH is working to expand the MSU network of scholars and teachers who are interested in opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching and a collaborative engagement on global issues.  By building connections within and across colleges with affiliated faculty, GSAH aims to bring the arts and humanities into dialogue with a broad range of disciplinary approaches to globalization. 

  • Affiliated faculty contribute to co-curricular activities sponsored by the program (conferences, lunches, brown-bags, reading groups and writing groups). 
  • Affiliated faculty courses in their home department can serve to fulfill GSAH student degree requirements.
  • Affiliated faculty can advertise their courses to GSAH students. 
  • Affiliated faculty can mentor GSAH majors’ capstone projects.
  • Affiliated faculty extend the program’s research and teaching network of scholars.
