The Center for European Studies, the University Center for International Studies, and the Institute of Latin American Studies invite graduate students and faculty in languages/literatures, social sciences, and humanities departments to attend a Languages Across the Curriculum (LAC) Mini-Workshop.
This accelerated workshop provides a brief introduction to UNC-CH's LAC Program, which integrates the use of foreign languages into interdisciplinary courses within the College of Arts and Sciences. Workshop sessions will cover The Theory and Practice of LAC and Tips and Techniques for LAC.
Participation in this workshop is strongly recommended for graduate students who wish to apply for upcoming LAC TA positions. Registration is required to attend; more information here. Attendance is free, and light refreshments will be served.

Europe as Identity: Histories, Spaces, Relations | A New Video Series Course
The fifth course in the EU Studies video conference series of courses run between UNC-Chapel Hill, NCSU, and UNC-Charlotte will be taught Fall 2006 by Peter Wagner of North Carolina State University. The course will be picked up live via video connection at the Chapel Hill and Charlotte campuses 3-3:50 PM MWF.
The course is
designed to show what is at stake in the present attempts to answer the
question of a European identity. In the first place, the course will provide
a thorough discussion of the Leitmotifs and ways by which “Europe” has
been created, and describe how the question of a European identity has
been answered in the past. The focus of the course is therefore on the
relationships between “identity” and “space”: the borders/ties that have
come to bind and the borders/ties that have come to divide what is known
as Europe today. The final aim of this course is for students to gain a
deeper understanding of the varieties of “Europe” that have existed throughout
history, to appreciate the contemporary vision of a united Europe, including
its problems and perspectives, and in general to learn about the dynamic
relationship between histories, norms, and visions that define a “self”
and its “other.” Given this task, the course is multi-disciplinary and
drawing on history, the social sciences and humanities, and a wide variety
of theories and approaches. Read
a full description of the course here.
