Virtual Meet-Up: Story Circles

Build up your resilience through the development of intercultural competencies with Story Circles! Story Circles is a group of people who share stories in response to a particular topic in a structured way that encourages full and authentic participation in both listening to and sharing personal stories.

 

At this event, each participant will take turns sharing responses to pre-determined prompts and reacting to what other students share. The prompts will be provided in advance to give you time to gather your thoughts. Each prompt will revolve around your own unique cultural experiences and won’t require any additional research or preparation. Dr. Frank Dolce, designer of these virtual story-sharing events, will facilitate the story-sharing session.

 

This is your chance to make lasting connections with other students, share your story, and learn about other cultures represented in the program.

 

Fulbright Research Sharing Series: Session 2

In an effort to offer meaningful educational exchanges between Fulbright grantees, One To World will continue its ongoing series where Fulbright scholars will have a platform to share their research to Fulbright student and scholar attendees. For this session, we are opening the event up to any others who may be interested in attending!

At our second session of the 2021-2022 academic year, Our presenter will be Fulbright scholar, Glyn Robbins from the United Kingdom, who will share his research on real estate development in New York (particularly the Bronx), and its effects on the community.

In March 2018, the City of New York, in the face of strong community opposition, approved the re-zoning (i.e. change of land use regulations) for Jerome Avenue in the Bronx, a two-mile corridor starting at Yankee Stadium and ending near Fordham University. Local people were concerned this would lead to the type of unaffordable housing, job losses and cultural shifts that have affected other parts of New York and many other cities.

The COVID pandemic delayed some of the potential changes, but now they seem to be gathering speed. LSE Visiting Fellow Glyn Robbins, currently in the Bronx as a Fulbright Scholar attached to CUNY Graduate Center, has recorded a significant upsurge of new development along Jerome Avenue, possibly confirming local residents' worst fears.

At this talk, Glyn will present his provisional research findings and inviting discussion about what the Jerome Avenue experience may tell us about the future of cities.

The session will end with a Q & A.
