February 21 — Mardis Gras in the Morgan Room, multimedia presentation

Contact: Steve Wehmeyer, swehmeyer@champlain.edu

When and where: Morgan Room, Aiken Hall, noon-2 p.m.

Steve will serve gumbo or jambalaya! (He says he’ll also do his best to offer something vegetarian.)

Join Dr. Steve Wehmeyer for a special presentation of his reserach on African American vernacular carnival processions and other forms of expressive culture in New Orleans. With Ash Wednesday coming up, he cordially invites you to raise our own roof a little bit on the day before. The lunchtime presentation will feature a slightly “kicked-up” version of a presentation he has bee preparing for a community event at Wake Robin later in the week, Creole cuisine, and conversation about some of the deeper secrets of New Orleans Carnival culture…   Faculty, Staff and Students are all more than welcome!

Those of you teaching COR 120 and COR 230, please feel free to encourage some of your students to join us.  This presentation intersects with key concepts explored in both of those courses.

Office of Diversity and Inclusion — This discussion definitely involves concepts of diversity and intercultural contact, so I’d also suggest it to anyone participating in Intercultural U…

Library folks — You all should come because this presentation includes ever-so-slightly incriminating photos of Andy Burkhardt marching in a Second Line Parade (!)

And laissez le bon temps rouler!
