The IRIS Fall 2019 Welcome event will be on Thursday, September 26, 5:00-8:30 pm, in the Wisconsin Historical Society theater and foyer. This event is free and open to the public as well as the entire UW-Madison community. No registration is required, though ID will need to be shown in order to get alcoholic drinks.
Are you an undergraduate or graduate student interested in learning more about foreign languages, study abroad, academic programs focused on other parts of the world, or research/travel funding opportunities? Are you a faculty or staff member, or a member of the community with a global outlook? Join us at the IRIS Fall Welcome Celebration to learn more about IRIS, to hear a lecture by Valentine Moghadam, of Northeastern University, and to have a drink and snacks on us!
Dr. Moghadam, Professor of Sociology and International Affairs, will speak about the varieties of feminism in the Middle East and North Africa.
