About Glimpse from the Globe

Glimpse from the Globe is an online student-run publication dedicated to providing timely and timeless analysis of international affairs. Established in 2013, founding Glimpse leadership identified the need to more prominently feature sophisticated and culturally engaging foreign affairs content produced by students at the University of Southern California. We strive to publish content that reflects the diversity of our publication’s contributing authors, while highlighting the pressing global challenges of our time. Beyond our news stories, all the work featured on Glimpse from the Globe provides an added level of analytical depth that challenges us to think critically.

It is in this spirit that Glimpse welcomes submissions from any author – on any topic or region – where the watermark of intellectual discourse is clearly elevated.

Glimpse from the Globe receives funding and support from the University of Southern California’s Department of Political Science and International Relations. Please refer to http://dornsife.usc.edu/sir for more information.
