All Day Hispanic Heritage Month (Multi-Day Event)
Come join us for various educational and social events hosted by Suffolk University Hispanic Association and the Office of Diversity Services!
All Day Sukkot (Multi-Day Event)

Jewish holyday: Sukkot (the Festival of the Huts) takes place 5 days after Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) and commemorates the 40 year period that the Jewish people wandered in the desert after their enslavement in Egypt, during which Moses was given the Torah on Mt. Sinai and they lived in temporary shelters. The Season of Our Rejoicing, as it is also known, is celebrated by building a sukkah (hut) that Jews make their “home,” where they eat, entertain, and sometimes even sleep for the 7 day festival, in thanksgiving for G-d’s protection and the harvest.[i]  

[i] Reform Judaism. “Sukkot.”

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM Course Design Institute (Four Part Series)

Do you need to revise a course because of enrollment fluctuations? Are you prepping to teach a new course, or are you frustrated or bored with the one you are already teaching?

This four-part intensive institute (running on the four Fridays during October) is designed to provide you with the tools, time, and collegial support needed to really dig in and design or re-design your course. Upon completion, you will have created the basic structure of your course—including a draft syllabus, assignments, assessment tools, and course outline.

Because this experience is designed to build community among faculty around campus who are undertaking the same design process, and because these sessions are very interconnected, we can only accept applications from individuals who can commit to attending all four sessions.

If you are unable to commit to this institute, look for other CTSE opportunities later this year.

Each participant will receive a complimentary workbook of course planning materials and lunch!

Facilitator: Katie Linder, Director, CTSE

Novelist and scholar Barbara Mujica will read from her new novel, I Am Venus.  The reading and book-signing is presented by the The Department of World Languages and Cultural Studies, The Theatre Department and The Women's and Gender Studies Program. The author’s books will be available for purchase.

About the author:

Barbara Mujica is a novelist, short story writer, scholar, and theater director. Mujica’s latest novel, I Am Venus (Overlook 2013) explores the identity of the model for the famous Rokeby Venus, the only extant nude of seventeenth-Spanish painter Diego de Velázquez. Her critically acclaimed novel, Sister Teresa, (Overlook 2007; paperback, Penguin 2008) depicts the life of Teresa de Avila. Mujica’s novel Frida (Overlook 2001; paperback, Plume 2002) was an international bestseller that has appeared in seventeen languages, and depicted the tumultuous relationship between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Barbara Mujica’s other book-length fiction includes The Deaths of Don Bernardo (novel, 1990), Sanchez across the Street (stories, 1997), and Far from My Mother’s Home (stories, 1999; French edition 2007).   

A Professor of Spanish at Georgetown University, Dr. Mujica writes extensively on Spanish literature, and her articles have appeared in many academic journals. She is President Emerita of The Association for Hispanic Classical Theater and Founder and Editor of Comedia Performance, the journal of the Association.

Barbara Mujica’s new novel reimagines the dramatic life and loves of the Baroque Spanish painter Diego Velázquez. Narrated by the mysterious model who posed for “The Toilet of Venus,” I Am Venus is a riveting account of a great artist’s rise to prominence, set against the backdrop of political turmoil and romantic scandal.
