About Us

Global Impressions,  a journal by Smith students “in and for the world,” offers a public forum for Smith students and alumnae to showcase short, nonfiction reflective essays on their intercultural  and interlinguistic encounters,  experiences,  misunderstandings and epiphanies abroad and at home.  Supported by the Lewis Global Studies Center, the journal aims to foster critical thinking about what living in a culturally and linguistically diverse world means today.  Global Impressions publishes two issues per year each focused on a specific theme, in addition to a special fall issue collaborating with participants of the Lewis Global Studies Center International Photo Contest.
