Thank you to our welcome reception/lunch sponsor!
We are grateful to Klett World Languages (KWL) for their sponsorship: thanks to KWL, our French guests and their host family will benefit from a very nice welcome/lunch reception.
Klett World Languages' mission is to help students learn languages they can use in real-life situations. And they do it by creating engaging and meaningful content that sparks their curiosity and motivates them to learn. KWL strongly believes that educators play a key role in language learning, and part of KWL's mission is to support them and give them opportunities for professional development.
We are grateful to Professor Ron Broglio and ASU - Desert Humanities for our partnership!
We are excited to announce that Professor Ron Broglio and ASU - Desert for Humanities, are partnering with us and will join our group for a 1-day trip to the Grand Canyon. Professor Broglio will make a presentation about the endangered species of the Grand Canyon. This is an incredible opportunity for our French guests and their American counterparts!
Ron Broglio writes books and essays on nonhuman phenomenology and animal studies. He has curated and produced a number of art exhibitions on contemporary environmental art. Ron is director of the desert humanities initiative at Arizona State University and Associate Director of the Institute for Humanities Research.
He is the author of Animal Revolution and Surface Encounters: thinking with animals and art among other books and edited collections including the recently published The Edinburgh Companion to Animal Studies. He co-edits the Desert Humanities book series for Texas Tech University Press.
Desert Humanities provides environmental experiences with the desert Southwest. Its premise is that we understand, appreciate, and care about our environment through physical engagement and cultural framing. Desert Humanities provides frames or ways of seeing, thinking, and feeling about the desert and offers opportunities to immerse in the landscape and its textured histories.
