The Department of Languages and Culture Studies held its first Multilingual Poetry Slam earlier this semester to showcase both original and classic poetry. The even was held in the Cone Center After Hours Cafe and was attended by more than 200 students and faculty. Performances ranged from the whimsical to the sublime. Awards were given to outstanding performances, though a big round of applause should go to the event organizers led by German Lecturer Bianca Potrykus. If you were unable to attend, take a look at this montage of performances that includes interviews with both Bianca and one of the event organizers, Spanish Lecturer Lorena Delgadillo.
