Hilary E. Kahn, Director for the Center for the Study of Global Change, has been at Indiana University since 1997. As Director, she oversees and initiates programs and projects involved in the deeper internationalization of Indiana University, leads the overall administration of the Center, and encourages innovative research and interdisciplinary scholarship in the field of Global Studies. She is also the Director of the Ph.D. Minor in Global Studies and leads the Framing the Global Project (with IU Press) and the Voices and Visions: Islam and Muslims from a Global Perspective Project. Hilary is an adjunct professor of anthropology at IUB and IUPUI and has taught numerous courses on topics such as issues and approaches to global studies, anthropological theory, ethnographic methods, visual anthropology, intercultural communication, the anthropology of religion, human rights and the arts, and indigenous cultures of Central America and Mexico. By using videoconferencing technology to link with classrooms overseas, she has taught students in Macedonia, Indonesia, and Russia. She also directs an international service learning program in Bluefields, Jamaica. Her areas of interest and expertise include international education, global teaching and learning, visual anthropology, indigenous image-making, identity formation, visual pedagogies, and transnational research. She has presented at national and international conferences, published numerous peer review articles and book and film reviews, and has a book "Seeing and Being Seen: The Q'eqchi' Maya of Guatemala and Beyond" (University of Texas Press, 2006) about her ethnographic research. In 2009, she received the IU Commission of Multicultural Understanding Faculty Award for promoting multicultural understanding in the classroom, on campus, and in the broader community and the International Studies Faculty Award in recognition for excellence in teaching.
