The Fries Center for Global Studies will be hosting a 2-day conference titled The Power of Language Conference taking place on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 4:30 - 7:00 PM to Saturday, April 27th, 2019 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The Power of Language brings together a community of students and professors interested in the topic of language learning, communications, and multilingualism. We hope to re-energize debates locally about communicating across linguistic differences at an intellectual and social level. The conference seeks to bring together multilingual students with students of foreign languages in an attempt to knit together the multilingual community on Wesleyans campus. The Power of Language stages a gathering for Wesleyans cohort of bi- and multilingual students that recognizes their efforts in and outside of the classroom, in curricular and co-curricular activities.
