In addition to themed events scheduled across our global network, NYU World Tour presents three flagship Marquee Events in New York City.
Join us for a panel discussion with NYU students from underrepresented communities that have studied away or participated in a global program. Student panelists will reflect on their personal experiences studying at one of the NYU Global Academic Centers and provide prospective students tips for navigating their racial/ethnic identity, gender, sexuality, socio-economic background and ability status while studying in another country. This program will be moderated by Andrew Gordon, President and Founder of Diversity.
OCTOBER 27 • 6 TO 8 PM • NYU WELCOME CENTER (50 W 4th St)
GRINGO TRAILS is a feature-length documentary that raises urgent questions about one of the most powerful globalizing forces of our time: tourism. Spanning South America, Africa and Asia, the tourist pathway known as the “gringo trail” has facilitated both life-altering adventures and the despoiling of many once virgin environments. The film follows stories along the trail to reveal the complex relationships between colliding cultures: host countries hungry for financial security and the tourists who provide it in their quest for authentic experiences.
OCTOBER 29 • 7 TO 9 PM • 5 WASHINGTON PLACE, RM 101
