Foreign Languages and the Environment: Seed Projects for Sustainable Humanities
March 1-2, 2018
Minneapolis, Minnesota

This symposium brings together scholar/teachers whose work in and beyond the classroom has been catalyzed by their commitment to curricular innovation, interdisciplinary projects, and public engagement with climate change issues. The symposium's purpose is to facilitate dialogue about educational redesign in the humanities as a collaborative intellectual project that crosses fields ranging from language, literature, national/transnational, and cultural studies to second language acquisition and STEM. This shift impacts undergraduate and graduate education and situates language programs at the forefront of institutional change. Presentations and roundtable discussions will explore theoretical frameworks, innovative curricular models (from design thinking projects to learning abroad), and implementation strategies for the enhanced teaching of languages and cultures in our multilingual world as a means for exploring cultural narratives, values, and perspectives related to the environment.

Space is limited; please RSVP as soon as you know you will be able to attend.
