Students Start the Semester in Istanbul

Columbia students from a number of schools kicked off the 2015 semester in Istanbul.  Kraft Global Fellows explored inter-faith dialogue in a program led by Chaplain Jewelnel Davis; Prof. Mark Anderson’s students from the Columbia Berlin Consortium studied migration trends; and Business School students were exposed to leaders in the field of entrepreneurship. Meanwhile, a group of Columbia students are based at Boğaziçi University for the semester, for the Global Seminar in Byzantine Studies and Modern Greek Encounters, taught by Profs. Martha Howell and Karen Van Dyck.

Work in Progress! “The Art of Bearden and B. Rahmi Eyüboğlu”

Professor Bob O'Meally met with Rahmi Eyuboğlu to plan the next phase in the global voyage of African American artist Romare Bearden’s iconic series, based on Homer’s "The Odyssey". 
 
Opening on April 15, 2015, at Sismanoglio Megaro, the Istanbul exhibition will feature works by the Turkish modernist Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu along with works from Bearden's "A Black Odyssey".
 
The exhibit is part of a year-long series of programs, lectures and performances inspired by Bearden’s interpretation of Homer’s classic, a staple of Columbia’s undergraduate Core Curriculum.
