Transnational Lives with Nina Glick-Schiller

Connecting with people from around the world is much easier now than it has ever been before. With the internet, phones, and fast travel, we can build relationships and networks in new ways - breaking through the barriers of national boundaries. This development of relationships and their influence despite national borders is known as transnationalism, a social phenomenon that we will be focusing on throughout a four part series. Join the conversation as we kick off the series with Lauren Copeland, a graduate student from the Department of Gender & Women’s Studies, Pathmanesan Sanmugeswaran, a graduate student in Anthropology, and Agata Grzelczak, a graduate student in Hispanic Studies, as they interview Nina Glick-Schiller, one of the pioneers of transnational studies. Glick-Schiller’s research has spanned across her career, influencing scholars both in the humanities and social studies.

Three Perspectives on the Inside-Out Program

In this podcast, we hear from Carrie Oser, associate professor in the Department of Sociology, Michele Staton-Tindall, associate professor in the College of Social Work, and Damien Angel, a former student of the College of Social Work, as they talk about their experiences with the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program. This course, centered around cooperation between “Inside” incarcerated students within the Blackburn Correctional Complex and “Outside” students from the University of Kentucky, explored drug dependency, its relationship with crime, and policy related issues regarding this problem. This course was a first for both Lexington and the University of Kentucky and shaped new perspectives while also establishing a bond between Inside and Outside students.
