CLACS is proud to support The Cinema Tropical Collection, a new and exciting initiative from Cinema Tropical that makes select Latin American films available digitally for the first time ever.

Combining the format of a curated online film series with virtual Q&As with the directors, plus VOD distribution, The Cinema Tropical Collection will present U.S. and international audiences with meaningful and relevant Latin American films in their world digital premiere.

The Cinema Tropical Collection premieres this Sunday, March 29, at 7pm EDT with the international streaming of the Mexican documentary Away from Meaning, the debut feature by Olivia Luengas, followed by a virtual Q&A with the filmmaker.

The film will premiere for free at 7pm EDT at cinematropical.com, and will be available to stream for free for 24 hours. After that initial window, the film will be available on VOD in Cinema Tropical’s VOD platform, Tropical on Demand.

"When most people think of study spots, the first thought that pops up is a library. Yes, Mount Holyoke’s Williston Library is one of the most beautiful in the country and we are so lucky to have it. But! Our campus contains multitudes — of places to study."

Happy St. Nicholas Day! Wesołych Mikołajek! 🎅 🎄 ❄

Poland’s St. Nicholas is "Święty Mikołaj". Children in Poland await the arrival of a gift-bearing visitor during this night 5/6 December. On St. Nicholas Eve, Mikolaj places gifts under children's pillows - in some regions - in their shoes.
Alternatively, Mikołaj visits in person, in the merry red winter suit. St. Nicholas Day is a fun holiday often enjoyed at schools and offices, while Christmas Eve is spent with family.

Colleges adding second language sections to English-instructed courses

"Why not discuss Southeast Asian politics in Indonesian? Opera in Italian? Shouldn’t Cornell Law students in clinics for Hispanic death-row inmates talk about the law in Spanish? At Duke, why not probe the racial, power and political dynamics of soccer in French, Italian or Portuguese?" This is what CLAC: Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum is all about. Would you like to see these types of courses at Mount Holyoke College? If so, which courses do you take now that might lend itself to a partner class in another language. I would love to make this happen here!

A move to add language-specific sections to English-instructed courses allows students to keep up their skills in a second language without another course.

Take a look at the LRC hours during Thanksgiving break. We hope you enjoy your days with friends and family.
