Dear students and colleagues,

The three Spanish TAs are incredibly happy and proud to announce an exciting language event that will be taking place this semester: a Quechua language workshop featuring the University of Oregon’s Quechua TA Katherin Montes Chamorro on March 12th from 7.30 to 8.30 PM in Hollander 241.
The workshop will consist of a 40-minute open class taught by Katherin Montes via Skype, and a 20-minute Q&A in which students and professors will be able to learn more from Katherin and the Quechua culture. Everybody is welcome since there is not a language requirement.
The United Nations has declared 2019 the Year of Indigenous Languages, which is why this is the perfect opportunity to celebrate a language that has been so culturally and socially important throughout history. Still spoken today across different South American countries, Quechua remains a symbol of resistance, pride, and survival among its speakers.
It is incredibly exciting for the entire Williams College community to be able to enjoy such an opportunity to celebrate not only a language but an entire culture.
We hope to see all of you there on March, 12th!
The event is organized by the Spanish TAs, the Romance Languages Department, the Center for Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures, and the Critical Languages Program.
