Join us for a hands-on workshop in which we explore the connection of cultural identities and language. Awareness and understanding of what shapes different cultural perspectives is an essential preparation for study, work, and research abroad and in Canada. There will be time to talk with professors and peers over lunch.
Prof. Emma Betz (Germanic and Slavic Studies) and Prof. David Rozotto (Spanish and Latin American Studies)
