How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Once again, Gina Sapiro invites CAS faculty who happen to be working on campus anyway to stop by to schmooze, catch up with colleagues, see what folks are up to, have a little refreshment. As your new faculty colleagues show up, bring them along. Or the shy ones hiding in their offices and labs. Informal – come as you are. Just drop by. No rsvp. No agenda.
