Event description

Description

In collaboration with the Linguistics Department and American Indian Studies, the Center for International Education invites you to the first Point of View Discussion hosted at the Multicultural Center.

Dr. Alexandra Jaffe (Chair of the Linguistics Department) and Dr. Craig Stone (Director of the American Indian Studies Program) will speak about the Puvunga Arts Empathy Production Project and the "I Appreciate and Respect You" Linguistic Landscaping project.

The project was born out of Stone’s participation in the CSU Ethnic Studies Task Force, which reinforced the urgency for campuses to take concrete action to make all members of a community feel appreciated and respected. This was coupled with Jaffe’s interest in “Linguistic Landscaping”—how written language in public places reflects and shapes the cultural climate and Stone’s expertise in public art.

The intent is to increase knowledge of and respect for the linguistic and cultural diversity of faculty, students and staff at The Beach.

Instructions for filming and sign-ups will be taken during the event.

Light refreshments will be provided.
