Cafe Philosophique: Dorothy Odartey-Wellington - Going International in the 21st Century
Tuesday, February 15, 2011
The University of Guelph has a longstanding exchange agreement with the University of Ghana that dates back several years. While the two U of Gs have exchanged many students over the years, the Arts programs, and the languages departments in particular, have remained on the margins of this international agreement. I examine the barriers to more inclusive collaboration with our partner University of Ghana, as well as two pilot projects currently underway at the School of Languages and Literatures aimed at strengthening our intercultural exchanges and our role engaged internationalization.
Dorothy Odartey-Wellington is an associate professor in the School of Languages and Literatures where she teaches courses in Spanish literature, culture and language. Her research interests straddle Africa and Europe with a focus on literature of Equatorial Guinea and contemporary Spanish fiction.
Café Philosophique is a free lecture series sponsored by the College of Arts.
