International Education Week (IEW)
11/14/2012, All Day
Wednesday, November 14:
World on Wednesday: “Egypt: Ancient of Modern Contrasts”
Noon. Student Life Center LLMR 1 and 2
Kitchen Table Series
5 p.m. Sarratt 189
The Kitchen Table Series is a student-designed program intended to reach across campus to highlight current gender issues and how they impact different communities. This program came to fruition because students wanted the space to talk about important issues in an informal and relaxed space. By partnering with diverse groups and student organizations on campus, The Kitchen Table Series will allow students the space they seek to converse about issues that matter to them. Sponsored by Margaret Cuninggim Women’s Center.
International Transgender Day of Remembrance
7 p.m. Student Life Center Ballroom A
The International Transgender Day of Remembrance was set aside to memorialize those who were killed
due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice. The event is held in November to honor Rita Hester, whose murder on November 28, 1998, kicked off the “Remembering Our Dead” Web project (rememberingourdead.org). Rita Hester’s murder— like most anti-transgender murder cases—has yet to be solved. Sponsored by LGBTQI Life.
iLens Film: Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India
6:30 p.m. Sarratt Cinema
The people of a small village in Victorian India stake their future on a game of cricket against their ruthless
British rulers. One of the most expensive films to come out of Bollywood, this film is filled with lavish, rousing entertainment in the old-fashioned tradition of Hollywood musicals with eye-popping song-anddance routines.
International Education Week (IEW) is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange.
