Meet Our Faculty: Vinay Gidwani

November 2, 2017

Vinay Gidwani is a professor of Global Studies and Geography, Environment, and Society, and his favorite Global Studies class is “Disposable People?: Surplus Value and Surplus Humanity.” “There is something that binds Global Studies students together.  Over the many years I have taught Global Studies majors, I have discovered that there is something temperamentally different about Global Studies students.  I think there is a certain sense of discovery that they have, and a curiosity about the world, but also a certain open-endedness, which I appreciate greatly.”   As one of the founding members of the Institute for Global Studies, Professor Gidwani explains the origins of the major.  Learn more about Vinay Gidwani.
