CERCLL will be leading a new initiative on campus in this series of events and professional learning communities for the University of Arizona’s faculty, administrators and graduate students in language, literature and culture departments to explore today’s best practices and models for foreign language, literature and culture departments.

We are hosting the launch event on Friday, September 27, 2019 (2:00-5:00 pm) on campus. It will feature world-renowned speakers who have a record of innovative program development. In a roundtable discussion, the invited speakers will each share transdisciplinary initiatives they have lead on their home campuses. This will be followed by breakout sessions in which participants can focus on themes of specific significance to them. Through these conversations, we will identify future directions to explore as a campus. The event will conclude with a reception.

Featured speakers:

  • Charlotte Melin (Professor of German University of Minnesota-Twin Cities)
  • Gillian Lord (Professor and Chair of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, University of Florida)
  • Domna Stanton (Distinguished Professor of French, CUNY; former President of the MLA)


Organized with the College of Humanities.
