Join the library's International Studies Team for a short panel presentation about the history of International Mother Language Day and the ways that members of our library and campus community engage with language. Then take a journey through a pop-up exhibit featuring literature and languages from around the globe. Perhaps you’ll encounter a language that is new to you!

International refreshments will be offered. We hope you'll join us in person, but you can stream the panel presentation via Zoom.

Panelists will include these members of our campus community:

On International Mother Language Day, we celebrate cultural diversity through the lens of language. We strive to promote multilingualism and multiculturalism in research and collections, fostering inclusion within our institution. This year, our focus is on actions to preserve and revitalize languages with smaller populations of native speakers.
