FLIS is Friday May 5th this year—welcome to our annual celebration and exploration of language and culture. The day begins at 8:30 a.m. with a welcome address from Dr. Julie Sykes, linguist, professor of Spanish, and teacher educator.
After that there are more than 70 presentations, workshops, and classes to participate in. You'll discover mini-language lessons, workshops on food, song, and crafts, and the ever-popular music and dance events, including UO's Dance Ensemble of Africa and the Opera Ensemble that produced this year's Cosí Fan Tutti. Sessions begin at 9:15 and end at 3:00.
As usual, FLIS represents the best of UO's commitment to international education. Presenters come from many parts of the university, bringing their expertise in language, culture, area studies, and the arts.
Check out the presentation page, where you can search by language, topic, or time for sessions that you're most interested in. The full program will be available in early April. Once you get it, you can plan your day more easily. The program is your ticket for all events—hang onto it.
We look forward to seeing you on May 5. Questions? Contact the Yamada Language Center.
