Attention all Undergrads interested in languages, world cultures, and/or the Humanities:

You are invited to participate in a series of meetings, where you will discover how words/concepts essential to the human experience across cultures have acquired different meanings in different languages due to specific historical, social, political, and cultural contexts. These dialogues will culminate in a final Symposium where participants will compete for prizes, including a $300 award for the 1st Place Final Presentation!

Event is free. RSVP is required.
