    Bringing Arabic to Carleton

    May 16, 2007 at 1:45 pm

    Stacy Beckwith teaches Hebrew language and literature courses and has played an integral role in bringing the teaching of Arabic to Carleton. “You can’t contemplate anything to do with the Middle East without it. Arabic language training will help our students move into careers in international relations and diplomacy. There are obvious connections to business, trade, development, health, computer science, and engineering, to say nothing of scholarship in Islamic studies, literature, and cultural studies.”

    May 16, 2007 at 1:34 pm

    Over the course of his career, history professor Harry Williams has traveled the world to learn about black people’s lives in a particular community. He uses those experiences to illuminate history for his students.

    “Many of my students are surprised to learn that there are black communities outside Africa and the United States," says Williams, the David and Marian Adams Bryn-Jones Distinguished Teaching Professor of History and the Humanities. "I want my teaching to give my students a deeper and more nuanced understanding of black internationalism.”
