Bluefield College will host a weeklong series of lectures, readings, films and other activities, March 19-23, designed to increase global cultural awareness and featuring presentations by visiting Fulbright Scholar Dr. Svetlana Ghenova from The Republic of Moldova.
Titled Global Education Emphasis Week, the annual event is part of the college’s overall Global Education Program, which includes study abroad. Open and free to students and the community, the 2018 version of Global Education Emphasis Week will feature two presentations by Dr. Ghenova.
On Thursday, March 22 at 4 p.m. in Shott Hall A&B, Dr. Ghenova will speak about “Lateral Marketing in the Context of the Activities of Modern Businesses in the Republic of Moldova.” On Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. in the Board Room in Lansdell Hall, she will present “The Republic of Moldova: Nation and Identity”
Dr. Ghenova is an associate professor of marketing at Comrat State University in Comrat, Moldova, and is currently a Fulbright Visiting Scholar at American University in Washington, DC. Her visit to Bluefield is made possible by the Fulbright Scholar Program’s Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF), which enables Visiting Scholars to share their research interests, speak about their home country, and exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty, and community organizations.
Bluefield College’s Global Education Emphasis Week will also feature a series of poetry readings as part of World Poetry Day, Wednesday, March 21. Members of the community are invited to join the BC family in reading their poetry – even in a different language, if possible – from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the dining hall in Shott Hall. At 8 p.m. that same day, the college will host a Poetry Slam in the Student Activities Center.
