Volunteers Needed – The Arabian Nights

The Center for the Humanities’ Great World Texts program is organizing its annual Student Conference, an all-day event at which high school students from throughout the state will present the work they’ve been doing this year in their participation with The Arabian Nights in Wisconsin.

They are still looking for volunteers who can help with this event (for as long or as little as they’re able), which will take place from 8:00 am-4:00 pm on Wednesday, April 6 in Memorial Union.  Volunteers will help students check in, find their rooms, and sit in on presentations to participate in the Q&A and help give students a sense of the college experience.  Students and instructors of Arabic and Middle Eastern studies are especially encouraged to participate, so they can engage in conversations with these students and share their experiences and perspectives.

If you can help, please contact Heather DuBois Bourenane, the Project Coordinator, at greattexts@humanities.wisc.edu and let her know your availability.
