Humboldt State University
California has long been able to command international respect and take action on the global stage. However our state’s economic and cultural size has always meant that its international activities raise many questions, from the strategic to the practical. How our state reconciles the demands of globalization while balancing its role with the increasingly international activities of cities, counties and tribes is crucial to the economic, political, and cultural future of the state in the 21st Century.
Join us as Dr. Alison Holmes of Humboldt State University shares her research on this important topic, and discusses it with a panel of scholars and experts.
