Pre-International Education Week Event: Reading Tolstoy

UNCG’s Russian Language Society is hosting a 24 hour cover-to-cover reading of Tolstoy's War and Peace on Friday-Saturday, November 12-13 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Tolstoy's death. This is part of the Russian department’s celebration of 40 years of Russian Studies at UNCG, which is sponsored in part by the International Programs Center’s Kohler fund.

We will begin the reading at 1:00pm on the lawn in front of the EUC (near the Minerva statue) and will continue through the night in the parlor of the LIHC. We hope to conclude by early afternoon on Saturday.

We will be lining up volunteers to read during the event and we would like to invite you to participate! Shifts can be as short as a page or two! It will be loads of fun and a memorable experience!

And YES...this can be done! We have done some research and we believe that all 1358 pages (600,000 plus words) can be read in about 24 hours!

The author, Leo Tolstoy

Join us in celebrating International Education Week, November 15-19!

The International Programs Center is excited to announce UNCG's celebration of International Education Week (IEW), November 15-19, 2010. IEW is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education and is promoted all over the world. The IPC, in conjunction with other campus departments and organizations, has planned an engaging schedule of international and intercultural activities, one of the highlights being our Study Abroad Photo Contest, where the UNCG community can come out and vote for their favorite photos. Check our website for more information.
