Thanks to an initiative by Grace Ingle of the Arabic Club and Visiting Foreign Language Teaching Assistant from Egypt Sarah Salah, students in beginner and intermediate Arabic visited Dickinson’s Trout Gallery on October 14, 2019. The Gallery featured a special exhibition by Edward Burtynsky on Water: Source, Agriculture, Aquaculture, Control, Waterfront, and Distressed. Students and their professors participated in several activities using Arabic language skills, art appreciation, and critical issues related to nature and the environment, man and social justice, beauty in all forms, and the meaning of life and death. Here are some photos!
