The Music, Language, and Culture Workshop

EthNoise! Autumn 2018

| 0 comments

Dear all,

I’m excited to pass along the Autumn schedule for this quarter’s EthNoise! workshops. We will continue to meet on Thursdays this year (with the exception of one workshop on Tuesday, October 9) from 5-6:20 pm (the later start time is meant to accommodate classes that now meet until 4:50 pm). The location for this year’s workshop is Rosenwald 301, which I hope will be a little more accommodating than previous locations in terms of space. The room is ADA accessible from the side entrance of the building. From the front entrance, the elevators are through the lobby and up the first set of stairs. When the elevator doors open on the third floor, you’ll see 301 across the hall toward the right. Feel free to reach out if you need further directions, or if you have any questions at all about this quarter’s workshops. I’ll be updating the blog with abstracts for individual presentations as the quarter goes by. We certainly have a great lineup for the fall; I look forward to seeing you there! (And remember: assorted snacks and drinks are a regular occurrence at every workshop!)
