Learn About Native American Culture and Literature This Fall

Ready for the WorldIn support of UT’s Ready for the World International and Intercultural Awareness Initiative, the Center for International Education seeks participants in its fall 2008 International Literary Colloquy.

Over its twelve years, the ILC has engaged hundreds of UT students, faculty and staff in exploring cultural themes in books written by or about various world societies. This fall semester’s ILC concentrates on Native American Cultures.

Sixty ILC spaces will be available this fall semester and the UT community is invited to apply. Each participant will be provided with copies of the three books and is expected to participate in all three book discussions and thematic luncheons. This semester’s three books are set in Native American cultures. Experts on the included themes will facilitate the discussions which take place during three Wednesdays or Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the International House.

If you wish to be considered for participation in the fall 2008 ILC, either pick up an application form at the front desk of the UT International House or download the application from the International House website at http://web.utk.edu/~ihouse/documents/colloquy-app-2008.pdf.

Once the application is completed it can be turned in at the I-House front desk, or emailed to ihouse@utk.edu.

Applications must be received by August 22, 2008. Applicants are expected to commit to participation in all three Wednesday or Thursday luncheon discussions. Participants will hear about their acceptance to the ILC soon after Friday, Aug. 22.
