Many events planned this week at Bloomsburg University
Bloomsburg University has a successful international education program in conjunction with the University of Buea in Cameroon. This month, four faculty members from that university are visiting BU; three are offering lectures next week that are open to the public free of charge. Martina Zenking and Ekoka Molino will speak about Bilingual Instruction and Multicultural Education in Cameroon, at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, in McCormick Center, room 2303, sponsored by BU’s College of Education. Justine Ayuk will talk about Gender and Development in Cameroon at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, in Andruss Library, Schweiker Room, sponsored by BU’s College of Liberal Arts and Gender Studies minor.
Also next week:
The work of artist Sage Dawson will be featured from Sept. 10 to Oct. 11 in the Haas Gallery at Bloomsburg University. In the exhibit, Home Sweet Ruin, Dawson examines the history of cartographic rendering: mapping to investigate sublimity, the distinct identities of spaces, and contemporary perspectives of nostalgia. The gallery is open free of charge from 9 am. to 4 p.m. weekdays and from noon to 2 p.m. Saturdays. For information, contact Scott Roper, sroper@bloomu.edu.
·  The Gender Studies minor is sponsoring a series of six French films. The first film, La Vie en rose, will be shown at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, in McCormick Center, room 2303.
