https://news.un.org/en/story/2019/09/1047012

Sign languages are crucial to “express oneself, connect with others and participate in all aspects of economic, social, cultural and political spheres”, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said in his message for International Day of Sign Languages, on Monday.

Help us help our language students to study abroad!

Happy Blue Demon Challenge Day! We hope you'll continue giving to the BRAULT MODERN LANGUAGES STUDY ABROAD FUND, either during the Blue Demon Challenge on Feb. 11th or during our Inspire DePaul crowdfunding campaign from February 12th-March 14th (link to campaign below). In this video, Modern Languages alumna (and current German MA student in MOL) Christina Zaeske talks about the importance of study abroad and how her own experience abroad shaped her life. And to everyone who's given so far: a big THANK YOU from all of us in Modern Languages!

I think that most of you are painfully aware of how little of contemporary literature gets translated into English, and of that paltry amount, how few books become finalists for the National Book Award. And while we'll have a chance to talk with author Anja Kampmann about her book's achievements in this country and in Germany, the fact that she'll be joined by translator Anne Posten gives us the chance to foreground the act of translation in a way that it seldom is and to talk about creative writing in general (it helps that Kampmann is also a poet).
