Student to speak on cultural understanding at Nov. 12 International Mondays
C. Mimi Harvey, Presidential Fellow in the doctoral program in communication

Stories from the Field," Monday, Nov. 12, from noon to 1 p.m. in the
International Center Lounge as part of the International Mondays lecture series.
The event is free and open to the public and a light lunch will be served.
Harvey will emphasize the importance of cultural understanding by using
stories from her travel, work and ethnographic research in several cultures

listening to the stories of real people struggling with real issues can be
a powerful sign of caring and struggling to understand across differences.
