Sorry for those of you who missed out on last week’s “Languages Worskshops” general meeting! We had a great time learning new and silly phrases and meeting all the new faces! We hope you can join us for tomorrow’s general meeting, in SSPA 107 at 4 PM, featuring the I/ST Department’s very own Nathan Gonzalez. He is a political scientist specializing in Iran, and will be discussing conflict in the Middle East during tomorrow’s meeting. Please join us for what should be an enthralling discussion afterwards. To better understand what he will be discussing, feel free to read Professor Gonazlez’s Huffington Post article here before tomorrow’s meeting.
This week is Islamic Awareness Week, and the Muslim Student Association has put together a very promising line-up of speakers starting tonight through Thursday evening. The lectures will be on Prophet Muhammad (Tuesday), Women in Islam (Wednesday), and Pathways to Peace (Thursday). To get further details, please refer to their Youtube video. They will also be outside of the Multicultural Center this Wednesday and Thursday answering questions, and handing out Qurans and information. And just an FYI, MSA always puts out a good spread! 😉
This Wednesday, join the History Student Association for a very special performance by vocalist and percussionist, Martha Gonzalez of Quetzal, a bilingual Chicano rock band based out of Los Angeles. RSVP on Facebook here.
Also on Wednesday, the German Department is putting on an outdoor film screening at 8 pm on campus. Bring your blankets and heißer Kakao to keep warm while watching the German silent horror film, Nosferatu (1922). What a perfect way to start off this year’s Halloween festivities! It is free for all and extra credit for German Cinema students. RSVP on Facebook and gather additional information here.
Don’t forget to join ISSA this Saturday, October 22 for our 2nd social night of the semester at Hollywood Forever Cemetary for the annual Dia De Los Muertos Festival. The festival will be held from noon to midnight, but ISSA will be heading out of Long Beach around 330pm. Let us know if you would like to join a carpool. Entrance is $10, and prepare to pay for parking. There will be food, music, and traditional Mexican festivities celebrating this “day of the dead” in the very beautiful and historic venue. Hope to can join in on the fun!
