The International Focus Series is presented by the KU Center for Global & International Studies in collaboration with various KU Departments and Area Studies Centers within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. This is an ongoing series of arts-related events--from the visual to performing arts and literature-with global and international scope. The theme for this Academic Year is “Nations & Identities.” The 2011-2012 series will explore the idea of Art & Artists as an extension or expression of this theme.
