Beginning in the fall of 2015, and with the support of the NYU Provost and NYU Global Research Initiative, Gallatin will launch the Gallatin Global Faculty-in-Residence Program. Each year, the School will host several visiting faculty members who will share their international perspectives on pressing social, political, and intellectual issues. The Gallatin Global Faculty-in-Residence Program follows one of the guiding principles of Gallatin’s academic philosophy: that deep intellectual inquiry benefits from a global perspective.
The program seeks to bring to Gallatin individuals who will have a strong intellectual and curricular impact. Renowned scholars, artists, public intellectuals, political figures, and other practitioners from various academic and professional fields and geographic regions will come to the School and be in residence for up to seven weeks. The visiting faculty will partake in public events, interact with students and faculty at Gallatin and across NYU, and share their work through seminars, workshops, or short-term courses or tutorials.
For 2015-2016, the visiting faculty members (pictured L to R) include the former mayor of Bogotá, Colombia Antanas Mockus; the Kuwaiti playwright and theater director, Sulayman Al Bassam; Pakistani columnist, policy analyst, and journalist Raza Rumi; and Israeli journalist Amira Hass.
