The Spotlight Seminar

The Spotlight Seminar is designed to bring experts from the local community and/or local universities to the Martin Institute, where they discuss their experience and research on important global issues to small groups of IS majors. Designed to last two hours, a Spotlight Seminar includes an interactive research presentation, refreshments and lively Q&A.

Recent Spotlight Seminars include Egyptian Activism by playwright Dalia Basouny, International Criminal Justice by WSU Professor Melanie Neuilly, and Marketing Palouse Agriculture Abroad by US Dry Pea and Lentil Council VP Pete Klaiber.

Speaker Series

An offshoot of the Martin Forum series of talks on international subjects sponsored by the Martin Institute, the International Speakers Series provides IS majors with an opportunity to dine with experts on a wide variety of topics. This gives our students a chance to converse about the issue in both specific and wider contexts, and to get graduate school and career advice from people with a wide range of experiences.


Visiting Scholars & Short Courses

In addition to its dedicated staff and faculty, the Martin Institute regularly hosts scholars from all over the world. Whether they teach one of our “short courses” spanning three to four weeks of a semester or arrive to conduct research, they contribute to the global competence of IS majors. Over the past several years, visiting scholars have arrived from Spain (Dr. Noe Cornago Prieto), Morocco (Dr. Mohamed Adiouane), the United Kingdom (Dr. Tayo Oke), China (Dr. Luo Huijun), Tunisia (Dr. Jawed Zouari), and France (Vincent Renaud) taught courses on Islam, Africa and Development, the European Union and the Arab Spring.
