|All day-Nov 22nd||HSU Campus|
A week of events and activities showcasing international issues and culture. Highlights include international food, a fashion show, a keynote speaker and panels on studying, living and working abroad.
|11:00 am-11:50 am||Goodwin Forum|
A snapshot of child well-being across the world will be presented, along with various models of child welfare practices. Western helping professionals often view their own practices as ideal, or as the only way to help children and families. However, using a “reverse mission” ideology when working with immigrant/foreign families and international professional colleagues can help globalize our thinking about best-practices. Particular examples from other countries such as Greek and Turkish communities on the island nation of Cyprus, and the newest member of the European Union, Croatia, will be explored. Those interested in psychology, sociology, anthropology, social work, education, child development, political science, history, women’s studies, and CRGS may be particularly interested in attending.
|12:00 pm-1:00 pm||UC Quad|

In June 2013, President Obama toured Africa for the second time, visiting Senegal, Tanzania, and South Africa. The controversial narratives generated have led to questions regarding his itinerary. In this presentation, Professor Dieme will take a closer look at his visit to Senegal via the trip to Gorée Island known for its historical role during slavery, the meaning of the visit for Senegalese leadership, and the lasting impression on the average Senegalese citizen.
|3:00 pm-6:00 pm||Kate Buchanan Room|
Follow the expedition of Humboldt and Bonpland to the New World on the largest map you have ever seen. See the territory they covered in a new way–a way that lectures, readings, or other narratives cannot convey. The map is laminated, allowing you to explore in detail by walking or crawling along. (All we ask is that you remove your shoes so as not to damage the map.)

Early jazz, country blues, gypsy music—all of these early influences still percolate within Andrew Bird's unique brand of indie-pop, but he has established a sound that is distinctly his own. Using a looping pedal, violin, and his unearthly talent for whistling, Bird creates densely layered sonic creations onstage. He has performed at such prestigious venues as New York's Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Coachella and Austin City Limits festivals.
