“Visual Icons of Timurid Architecture in Uzbekistan” – Lindsay Wailana Kalama-Smith
A summer journey to discover 15th-18th c. Timurid architecture within its modern, often industrialized background. My initial intent was to analyze the buildings and the link between the cultures of past and present, and to observe the influence of Islam and other cross-cultural exchange on these grand monuments. I discovered much more about the people and society about Uzbekistan and Central Asia than I had ever anticipated. I wandered around streets centuries of years old, happily meandering around these mosques, madrasahs, mausoleums, and museums. This talk will encompass my various reflections of the journey.
“Intensive Language and Cultural Study at the Chinese Univrsity of Hong Kong” – Xun Li
Join Xun as he shares his summer experience in Hong Kong. With Chinese emerging as an important language of the world Xun set out to not only explore the language and culture of China but also to reconnect with his home country as he participated in the Chinese University of Hong Kong International Summer School – Chinese Language Program.
The University Convocation series is facilitated through the Office of the Chaplains and planned by the Students of IDS 202 (Convo: Campus/Community/Cosmos).
