Language Talk - Episode 1

Our first Language Talk podcast features host Laura Roche talking about the K-16 Collaboration Initiative with Jeanmarie Rouhier-Willoughby, Chair of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Kentucky. They talk about the goals of the Collaboration Initiative to create stronger bonds in the state among world language teachers of all levels (from K to higher ed). They introduce the centerpiece of the Collaboration Initiative, the new Outreach Clearinghouse. There teachers will find information on classroom/teaching resources, professional development support, and opportunities to participate in world language events at colleges and universities in the state. If you have an event or idea to share on the Outreach Clearinghouse, please contact Laura Roche laura.roche@fayette.kyschools.us or Jeanmarie Rouhier-Willoughby (j.rouhier@uky.edu).

Examining Conflict to Create Peace: The NSF Grant with Emily VanMeter

In the summer of 2014, several undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts & Sciences received a grant from the National Science Foundation.

In this interview, we speak with Emily VanMeter, a senior Political Science and French Studies major. VanMeter speaks about her research on civil conflict and peacekeeping and how her project helped her explore the unseen processes of academia.

MCLLC Alumni Panel: Finding the Right Professional Path

In November, we were given the opportunity to record an alumni panel featuring several accomplished graduates from the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. The panel was planned and moderated by Linda Kraus Worley who wanted to give students the opportunity to speak with alumni who have successfully combined their M.A. degrees in MCLLC with another professional degree. Within this panel we hear from three professionals, Sean Kinder, Jason Kelly, and Nate Smith about their experiences in education and in the field. We join the panel with Nate Smith describing his career path, followed by Jason Kelly and Sean Kinder.
