In the past decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added elements of intercultural and global awareness to their discipline, degree, and course outcomes. Whether titled “intercultural awareness” or “global citizenship,” “intercultural competence” or “global awareness,” these new focal points center on a more international, cross-cultural understanding of the world and its interactions. The American Association of Colleges and Universities, for example, has generated a “Global and Social Responsibility Initiative” that articulates three main outcomes for students in the 21st century:

1.) Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.

The Milton Society of America seeks to assemble a roundtable at the RSA 2024 on the shifting role of teaching and writing about the work of John Milton in the academic profession today, in different places across the world. Although some of our conversations will revolve around the serious institutional and vocational challenges that many Miltonists confront, we also hope to hear about creative responses to those challenges as well as contexts in which Milton scholarship is beginning to take hold or developing in new ways. Participants will be asked to open with brief (approximately seven-minute) prepared remarks in order to allow ample time for conversation and discussion.
