  • Campus Currents
    Hedges Conference Room, Thomas Commons
    All day
    All staff members are encouraged to attend a Campus Currents meeting to gain and share information useful for engaging current students, recruiting new students, and connecting with alumni and friends of the college. These meetings also give staff members opportunities to discuss and provide feedback on broader college issues. Campus Currents meetings are repeated so offices can remain open while staff rotate attendance. These meetings are 9-10 a.m. and again 2-3 p.m. each day they are held. Participants suggest agenda items in advance, and meetings are held only when an agenda is created approximately two weeks in advance. Contact: Cindy Krob

    Presentation for faculty and students by Aron Aji, director of the MFA in literary translation at the University of Iowa. Translation for Global Literacy (TGL) fosters the integration of translation in the undergraduate curriculum both as practice and as a method of inquiry into the dynamics of the global society. Highly interdisciplinary and integrative, TGL is academic training at the intersection of world languages, creative writing, translation studies, as well as disciplinary programs. A liberal arts college is an especially ideal environment for this practice given our commitment to integrative learning, dialogue across disciplines, diversity, and global engagement.
