Language Matters Seeks ‘We Are Orange’ Proposals and Offers Recitation Option in Mandarin

Nov 27, 2019 — Article by: Dan Bernardi

The interdisciplinary research initiative Language Matters has announced two exciting student opportunities. Languaging Across the Curriculum (LAC) is offering a recitation in Mandarin Chinese in LIN 201, The Nature and Structure of Language, in Spring 2020. The recitation will conduct readings and discussion in that language. Learners of Chinese at the 300 level or above are encouraged to register for next semester’s recitation in Mandarin. A similar pilot program in Spanish has attracted students who speak or study that language.

Performing Identifies Across Cultures (PICS) seeks student proposals for 15-minute performances on the topic “We Are Orange.” Each performance should explore the question: What does it mean to be Orange? In honor of Syracuse University’s 150th anniversary, submissions are asked to represent the past, present, or future of Syracuse. Each selected piece will receive a $500 award. Performances will take place in tents on the quad on April 16. The deadline to apply is December 6 and the deadline for script submission is February 1. For questions, contact picsplays@syr.edu.
