The visiting scholars scheduled to present include: Hongjuan Zhao, an East Asian languages and literatures scholar, and Yan Yan, a physics scholar, both from China, Ioannis Mergos, a materials science & engineering scholar from Greece, and Paola Dama, a Comprehensive Cancer Center scholar from Italy.

The Office of International Affairs will continue its partnership with the Gateway Film Center this semester with the Global Engagement Film Series. The series promotes international cinema with a different screening on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

The selected films offer new cultural perspectives, and provide an opportunity to support films from around the world. Students can attend the films for free, and often guest speakers are invited to participate in a Q&A session following the film.

September's screening will be "Finding Fela," a Sundance Film Festival selection which depicts the life of Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.

October's screening will be the Oscar-nominated French film "Persepolis."The film tells a coming-of-age story of a young Iranian girl during the Islamic Revolution.

The November film selection will be released soon. Continue to check our website for updates, or follow us on Facebook.
