CAS Modern Languages and Literatures Glow Big Red 2021

Help the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and GLOW ALL IN

Date: Time: 12:00 pm–12:00 pm
Contact: Glow Big Red Dept. of Modern Languages and Literatures, (800) 432-3216,
Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages & Literatures at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We offer majors, minors, and courses in eight different languages, as well as an M.A. in French, German, and Spanish, and a Ph.D. in French and Spanish. We are a community of scholars, researchers, educators, writers, poets, theorists, humanists, linguists, social scientists, cultural critics, historians, translators, interpreters, businesspeople, leaders of study abroad programs, philosophers, critical thinkers, and cultural ambassadors. We believe that the unifying thread across our curriculum and research is the study of difference. It is through the study of differences that we learn to connect with other cultures. We work to foster the creative and transformative synergies that can emerge from the diversity of many kinds. By working towards radical inclusivity, we seek to overcome the comforts and dangers of monoculturalism and monolingualism in the classroom and in the community. We do this for our students, for our community, and for ourselves. As such, our mission prioritizes two key values of the College of Arts and Sciences and the wider UNL mission: first, to embrace excellence through diversity of all kinds, and second, to serve as a cultural resource for the wider Nebraska community.

We will use funds to support our students’ learning opportunities in and beyond the classroom in the form of experiential learning opportunities, fellowships, and scholarships. Our graduate students participate in cutting-edge research with faculty and are involved in several projects in the larger Nebraska community that contribute to our mission.

It’s time to Glow All In for Glow Big Red — 24 Hours of Husker Giving! From noon to noon on Feb. 17 and 18, Huskers near and far are encouraged to give back to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
