Educational opportunities this week

There are a myriad of opportunities to learn about inclusion and global engagement this week. Aside from going to see Charles Man at 7:30pm in McGaw tonight, here is a partial list of the Center’s collaborative activities.

On Wednesday at 7pm in Kauke Tower, come to a film screening of Amreeka. This is part of our film and discussion series called Views of Arab America. Students, faculty and staff are taking on the challenge of “rehabilitating” stereotypical images of Arab America. For more information on the film series, please see our wiki or check-out the video below.

On Thursday come to launch of an exhibition about the May 1933 book burning in Nazi Germany. This event ushered in a period of state censorship and government control of culture. The exhibit comes to us from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and is called “Fighting the Fires of Hate: America and the Nazi Book Burnings”. The exhibition will also launch a community campaign called Embracing our Differences. Our keynote speaker for that evening will be Dr. Leon Bass, a sergeant that liberated Buchenwald.
