This month, the UNC reading group won a Student Learning Circle Grant to continue their monthly reading workshops.
The Student Learning Circle Grants are opportunities meant to enrich the flow of ideas and an awareness of global projects among students. These circles, administered by the UNC Center for Global Initiatives, receive funding for an academic year to support activities such as speaker series, brown bag lunches, workshops, publications, film screenings and service-learning projects. In addition to promoting the academic work of students, the goal of these Student Learning Circles is to deepen the work of the Center for Global Initiatives.
Last year, the UNC Configurations of Empire group used the Student Learning Circles Grant to hold a film screening of Mala Mala (2014), co-directed by Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles. Stay tuned for this year’s event!
