10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

University Convocation - "Negotiating Englishes in the Global Era"
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

*WU Campus - Waller Hall

Paul Kei Matsuda, Professor of English, Arizona State University

The English language has become the language of choice for global communication. The spread of English, however, has also prompted the diversification of the language. The formal and functional diversity of English in the global context requires all users, including users of U.S. varieties of English, to negotiate language differences as they interact with people from all around the world.

In this presentation, Dr. Matsuda will provide an overview of the changing nature of the English language and discuss what it means to use English in the age of globalization. He will also explore strategies for negotiating language differences -- an essential skill for today's college-educated citizens of the world.

Paul Kei Matsuda is Professor of English and Director of Second Language Writing at Arizona State University. His campus appearances are sponsored by the Writing Center through the generosity of the Porter Fund.

The University Convocation series is facilitated through the Office of the Chaplains and planned by the students of IDS 202 (Convo: Campus/Community/Cosmos).

Mindfulness Meditation
4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

The practice of mindfulness refers to our efforts and discipline at being fully present in the now, of living in the present moment. Mindfulness practice nourishes an understanding of the interconnectedness of our lives with the larger world we inhabit, allowing us to develop an enhanced awareness of the present, a stillness that cultivates a mind of love, compassion, kindness and peace.
