International student community to share the importance of “home” at Nov. 18 event

(Nov. 11, 2015) – Carson-Newman University will present “A Sense of Place in Appalachia” on Wednesday, Nov. 18. The event is sponsored by the University’s Appalachian Cultural Center.

Free and open to the public, A Sense of Place will feature members of Carson-Newman’s international student community. Students will share poetry and readings in their native languages and discuss the time as current residents in Appalachia. The event offers a unique blend of cultures of Appalachia, Portugal, Korea, Saudi Arabia, China, Germany, Japan and others.

“Last year was the first time that I attended this event, and I was overwhelmed by it,” said Dr. Regina Sullivan, Carson-Newman’s new dean of Global Education. “It bridges cultural divides by focusing on what we all share: love and appreciation of our homes. It is a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to experience the beauty and diversity of our Carson-Newman international students.”

Carson-Newman has a thriving international community of some 120 students representing 30 countries.

The 4 p.m. event will be held at the Appalachian Cultural Center located on Russell Avenue on Carson-Newman’s campus.
