For short-term, through the lecture series, we hope to provide students and faculty with insights into some of the most important, current, creative, cutting-edge work in multilingualism and intercultural communication, to encourage interdisciplinary and interdepartmental collaboration, and to inspire more students to pursue studies in languages, cultures, and communication.
We also expect the MIC Distinguished Lecture Series to have a sustained, long-term impact on the SBU campus. Ultimately, through the lecture series, we hope to contribute to a campus that is knowledgeable about and sensitive to the complex, creative, and dynamic nature of multilingual and intercultural repertoires that characterize today's global citizenry.
