Summer is an opportune time for cross-pollination in academia, as professors journey to other institutions to give lectures, attend workshops, pursue research, and connect with colleagues. That was certainly the case for many NYU Law faculty members during the summer of 2016, and we’ve plotted their destinations on an interactive map. Click here to view the full map.

A wide view allows you to see how far-flung the locations visited were—John Norton Pomeroy Professor of Law Philip Alston, for example, went to Nouakchott, Mauritania, in his role as UN special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, and then taught a one-week intensive course on human rights in Melbourne, Australia. By zooming in on the map, you can focus on a particular location. Oxford University, for instance, drew visits from Professor of Philosophy and Law Anthony Appiah (to lecture on world citizenship), Professor of Law and Public Policy Lily Batchelder (to present at a symposium on business tax), Professor of Law Jeanne Fromer (to participate in IP workshops), and Arthur T. Vanderbilt Professor of Law David Garland (to lecture on criminology).

You can click on the purple map pins to read details about individual appearances and use the left-hand panel for navigation by name.
