Attention all Undergraduates, Staff and Faculty 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! Meetings will take place in Royce Hall room 342 at 2pm-3:15pm
