Spring 2015 Brownbag/Research Talks

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures invites the NC State community to attend our Spring 2015 Brownbag/Research Talks Series.

Since its inception in 1907, the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures is committed to the teaching of modern and classical languages, literatures, and cultures as an indispensable part of the University’s mission. It strives to make increasing contact between cultures a daily reality for the students and educators of NC, thus expanding multi-cultural and global awareness through diverse and interdisciplinary research, excellence in teaching, and outreach activities.

The series is an important part of the department’s commitment to cutting-edge, solution-driven research and scholarship as well as experiential education.
