In support of the University of Tennessee’s “Ready for the World” international and intercultural awareness initiative, the UT Center for International Education seeks participants in its spring 2010 International Literary Colloquy (ILC).
Over its thirteen 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.
Sixty spaces will be available this spring 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 fairy tales from three different cultures. Experts on the included themes will facilitate the discussions which take place during three Wednesdays or three Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the International House.
Applications can be picked up an at the front desk of the International House or downloaded from their Web site. Once the application is completed it can be turned in at the I-House front desk or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be received by Thursday, Feb. 11. Applicants will be notified of their status.
