WESupport International Students

From Elizabeth Arslanoglou ’16:

Are you an international student? Are you facing difficulties in adapting to classes and social life at WES? Do you feel that your cultural norms are different from those in the US? Do you believe that there are many things you just don’t get here? Do you feel homesick? Do you want a group of people similar to you to talk to?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, join us in our New Mental Health Support Group, specifically focused on International Students. The group will be facilitated by trained students who will also be active participants in the discussion. We will be having weekly friendly conversations about issues that concern us, relative to our transition from other cultures into a US college campus. You are not the only one out there facing “culture shock” so come share your experiences and thoughts!

Date: February 23-May 11
Time: 8-9 PM
Place: Memorial Chapel Meditation Room

Wesleyan Master’s Project Readings and MPhil Talk

MALSMPHILEVENTBANNER

Join the Graduate Liberal Studies community for a special event celebrating the humanities. The event features MALS candidates Michael Felberbaum and Tom DeBeauchamp reading from their final projects in pursuit of their MALS degrees. After a short intermission, Matthew Bennett will give a talk from his MPhil thesis, “A Commentary on David Mazzucchelli’s Asterios Polyp.”

“Asterios Polyp” is a multivalent that requires multiple readings to fully understand the richness and complexity of David Mazzucchelli’s masterpiece. This commentary seeks to create a method and apparatus for reading Asterios Polyp. It offers a way of reading, a method; it also offers essays which facilitate an understanding of the novel; and it offers interpretations and analyses. On one level, it appeals to the reader in us, desperate for a way to come to grips with a work which by its very nature defies traditionally held beliefs about comics and what constitutes a novel. On another level, it serves as a way for teachers and students to gain insight and knowledge of the text through a deeper understanding of the content and context of the novel.

Date: Saturday, May 3
Time: 4:00 PM
Place: Allbritton 113

Film Series: Casablanca

1942. USA. Dir: Michael Curtiz. With Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman. 102 min. 

 

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

And when two lovers woo
They still say, “I love you”
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by…
