The increasing movement of people and goods across borders can both spread diseases and provide opportunities to stop them from going out of control. So says Jeremy Youde, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota Duluth, who will talk about “Globalization: The Cause of and Solution to the Global Health Crises” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in UMD’s Montague Hall, Room 70. Youde is a global figure himself. After serving in the faculty in UMD’s Department of Political Science from 2008-16, he spent three years as an associate professor at the Australian Natonal University in Canberra, Australia. He returned to UMD in July. Youde is the author of five books, the most recent being “Globalization and Health,” which will be available for sale at the end. The talk is presented by the Royal D. Alworth Jr. Institute for International Studies.
