The UNC Greensboro Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (LLC) will sponsor the event Poetry Flow: A Celebration of Words on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Elliott University Center.
The event will take place in three simultaneous venues:
- a Poster Presentation option so that students can showcase their work (Cone Ballroom C)
- workshops in which students and faculty will work on language-specific activities related to poetry (in several EUC rooms)
- an open mic session (Cone Ballroom A and B) for students who love to recite poetry. Students will have the opportunity to participate according to their proficiency level and their personal preference.
This year’s goal has been to embed poetry in LLC courses so that this event serves as a catalyzer of the work done previously by students. A second goal is to expose UNCG students to the rich cultural traditions of the languages that are taught in LLC. This multifaceted event will provide students with a venue to showcase their work as well as to appreciate the work of others.
The mission of this LLC initiative is to highlight LLC’s diversity, common love, and respect for all languages and cultures, as well as the desire to instill in our students an appreciation for cultural diversity through language and other forms of cultural expression. LLC seeks to spark students’ interest in languages through several creative outlets. Therefore, LLC will offer several opportunities throughout the day for students to be exposed to the aesthetic side of all the languages studied in the LLC Department: ASL, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Korean, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
