with UCI scholars

Thursday, November 18, 2010
3:30-5:00 p.m. 
Social Science Plaza A, Room 1100 

In cooperation with the Center for International Education (CIE), the International Studies Program is presenting a special ISPF for the International Education Week.  For the past year, an interdisciplinary group of UCI scholars have been studying the story of Ghana, West Africa, from its history, language and cultural connections to the U.S. to its present day attention as the focus of celebrity humanitarian interest.  The group, which includes undergraduates and graduate students as well as recent alumni and faculty from the arts, computer sciences, humanities, public health and social sciences, traveled to the University of Ghana August 14 to September 5 where they used dance as their gateway for studying and experiencing the region first hand. At their ISPF talk, the scholars will share their experiences and findings.

Co-sponsored by the Center for International Education (CIE)

This lecture is free and open to the public.
