Dear School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program Students,
Bon jour! Salaam! Guten tag! Namaste! Merhaba! Sannu! Szia! Jambo! Ni hau! Greetings from around the world! And what a world it is. It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears. And while one can never learn everything about it, in the coming week there are plenty of events and opportunities where you can expose yourself to different cultures, ideas, and viewpoints. To experience languages and cultures from around the world, be sure to check out the Poetries-Politics exhibition in the Academic Building tomorrow and Friday from 9-5. To learn about different ideas from incredibly successful women register for the Women Entrepreneurs Leading Change next Monday. To see a different viewpoint, check out the book talk with Professor Saladin Ambar that day as well. Learn about all of these things this spring in one of our honors courses. If you only have a few minutes, read about how one honors student learned more about world issues this past summer on the SASHP Blog. And to share your perspective with the world, be sure to check out how you can share information about events through the SASHP twitter account, @RU_SASHP down below.
In the meantime, as we continue to rotate on this mostly water covered rock we call home, remember it’s a world that we share, so it’s time we’re aware it’s a small world after all.
Student Director of Honors Media
Poésies-Politiques / Poetries-Politics is an international conference drawing scholars and poets from around the globe to discuss and read texts illuminating the fluid and ever-changing relations between poetry and politics. The exhibition, which will include over 100 great political poems from Antiquity to the present representing a vast array of languages and cultures, will feature printed posters individually designed through a collaborative process with Visual Arts students from Mason Gross School of the Arts, as well as films on the poster-poems and on the "making" of the exhibition. Attending either day will count as a Colloquium event. Find out more here.

A Book Talk with Professor Saladin Ambar
Mario Cuomo, the longest-serving Democratic governor of New York, was a powerful orator and a liberal champion for the Democratic Party’s progressive legacy. He is often remembered most for what he did not become: President of the United States.
And yet, as Saladin Ambar, an Associate Professor of Political Science and Senior Scholar at the Eagleton Center on the American Governor, argues in American Cicero: Mario Cuomo and the Defence of American Liberalism, Cuomo was far more than a passing figure in American politics. Come here more at Saladin’s reception and book talk. RSVP here.
Leading Together joins community leaders, Rutgers students and faculty for a conversation on civic engagement and leadership. This panel discussion featuring distinguished leaders will be facilitated by special guest, Steve Adubato, Ph.D. All are welcome to join us for this exciting interactive conversation.This event will also feature a free book signing and light refreshments. Find more information here.
