Monday, November 13

Study Abroad: A View from the Other Side

4:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Eykamp Center for Teaching Excellence, Room 253

Dr. Norma Franklin, Research Fellow, Zinman Institute of Archaeology, University of Haifa, Israel
Co-Director, Jezreel Expedition

In this presentation, Dr. Franklin will talk about the value of student study abroad experiences from her perspective as an Israeli archaeologist. Before co-directing the Jezreel Expedition with UE’s Dr. Jennie Ebeling, Dr. Franklin supervised hundreds of American college students as a senior staff member of the Megiddo (biblical Armageddon) excavations and is thus very familiar with the challenges and rewards of the student study abroad experience. This presentation will be a great resource for students who have studied abroad or who are interested in a study abroad experience.

8 Borders, 8 Days Film Viewing and Discussion

6:00 p.m.
Schroeder School of Business Building, Room 170

“For the last year and a half, documentary filmmaker Amanda Bailly has been following a Syrian family – a single mother and her two children – who were not accepted for resettlement to the US and instead traveled with smugglers in a raft to Europe. Amanda traveled with them on their journey and has been filming them in Berlin since they arrived. This film is both a celebration of a strong mother and a close look at what happens when we close our doors to the people most in need.”

The screening will be followed by an interactive discussion with movie director Amanda Bailly, Dr. Derek Jones, and a panel of Syrian and American students. It promises to be a meaningful and fascinating evening.
