On Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 12 p.m. in Union 201, please join us for lunch and a lecture by Nadema Agard explores the legendary figure from an Algonquin traditional world view, a Western historical context, and the contemporary perspective of Algonquin women of the greater Northeast, using literary references, images, video clips and music. Pocahontas will be presented in the context of her cultural and spiritual beliefs as a child born to be a special medicine person and chosen for a great destiny. Her post-European-contact history will show her to have been a businesswoman, landowner, Christian convert and diplomat in contrast to the popular American cultural stereotype that has evolved. Her image and historical legacy will be explored in the lives and work of Algonquin women today. Lunch will be provided.
On Wednesday, Nov. 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Faculty Dining Room, all students are invited to a dinner workshop, “Working the Table: The Business Etiquette Dinner,” designed to help students prepare for job interviews or meetings that are held in conjunction with a business meal. The program is free. While all students are welcome, it will be particularly useful for juniors and seniors hoping to interview in the upcoming months for internships and full-time jobs. Professional business attire (business suit, tie, dress shoes, etc.) is required. Registration is required for seating, which will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
