2017 PHOTO EXHIBITION AND LAUNCH

 

We hosted our Annual Photo Exhibition and Launch Event for this academic year on October 30th, 2017 on both the SAIS DC and SAIS Bologna campuses. During the events on either campus, we first unveiled our theme for the 2017-18 version of the publication - Development for All. Then our guest speakers -  Fei Yu, Deputy Representative at the North American Representative Office of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), in Washington DC and Prof. Federico Rossi in Bologna - made their remarks on our theme. Last, we revealed the winners of this year's SAIS Perspectives Photo Contest - Samuel Reynolds' (BO '18) picture of kids playing in trees in Papua New Guinea was this year's winner. Both events were followed by receptions.

We received over 100 amazing photos taken around the world by members of the sais community. To celebrate the launch of our new online platform, we displayed the top FIFTEEN entries at a photo exhibit held at SAIS.

Who are We?


Who are We?


 

SAIS Perspectives is the student-run publication of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies International Development (IDEV) Program. OUR GOAL IS TO CREATE A PLATFORM FOR SHARING DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ON CURRENT ISSUES IN THE FIELD OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT. 

Each year the editors choose a theme, and then solicit articles based upon that theme from the GREATER SAIS community. Last year’s theme, "technology and development", brought together articles from students, professors, and alumni RANGING FROM THE ROLE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGY IN ELECTRIFYING SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA TO HOW MOBILE TECHNOLOGY IS AIDING SYRIAN refugees. BEFORE THAT, THE theme was "migration and displacement." This year’s theme is “INCLUSIVE development.” 

Previously, SAIS Perspectives was an annual print publication. in 2014, however, we launched SAIS Perspectives' new online home, www.saisperspectives.com. WE ACCEPT BOTH SHORT BLOG ENTRIES THAT HIGHLIGHT AN ISSUE OR INTERESTING EXPERIENCE, AS WELL AS LONGER ARTICLES THAT DELVE DEEPER INTO AN ISSUE. OTHER MEDIA—SUCH AS PICTURES OR VIDEO—ARE ALSO ACCEPTABLE. 

WE ENCOURAGE ALL SAIS STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND ALUMNI TO SUBMIT ARTICLES FOR PUBLICATION. LEARN HOW TO SUBMIT PIECES HERE.
