In celebration of International Education Week Nov. 14-18, the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University will be inviting the community to join in a promotion and celebration of international education.

The main events include two lectures which are free:

  • On Thursday, Nov. 17, Malcom Choat, senior lecturer of ancient history at Macquarie University, will speak at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building. His lecture is titled “Two Christian Monastic Communities in Late Antique Egypt: Recent work at Dra’ Abu el-Naga (Thebes) and El-Hagarsa (Sohag).”

The week will wrap up with “Passport to Dance” Friday, Nov. 18 from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Wilkinson Student Center Terrace. Dance instruction by BYU folk dancers, an Italian soda bar and pizza are included for $3 in advance at the WSC Info Desk or $4 at door.
Nationally established in 2000, International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn and exchange experiences in the United States.
